Margaret Campbell began her musical studies at the Aylesbury Music Centre before winning an Open Scholarship to the Royal College of Music where she studied with John Francis and Sebastian Bell, winning both prizes for the flute. During this time she also attended master-classes with James Galway. At the age of twenty she left the RCM to take up her appointment as Principal Flute with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra - appearing on several occasions as soloist including a Henry Wood Promenade Concert. In 1981 she won the National Federation of Music Societies Award for Young Concert Artists which led to numerous recital and concerto engagements all over the country and broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 with her pianist John Lenehan. In 1986 she moved back to London as Principal Flute with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. In addition to this post she freelances as a soloist and recitalist and appears regularly as guest Principal Flute with the major London orchestras.
