Margaret Shilton


Margaret Shilton
Choir Leader
Margaret was born in Buxton, Derbyshire and came to Australia in 1955. She qualified as a teacher and later gained a graduate Diploma in Music Education. She enjoyed a long career teaching in schools in Melbourne, and sang in many musical productions with some of the best amateur companies. Margaret founded the first U3A choir in Victoria twenty years ago, and has been unstinting in her work with choir ever since. She is inspiring and supportive to the members, who enjoy the pleasure of singing well under her guidance and performing for the enjoyment of others in the community.
Margaret’s special interest is her work for Vision Australia as a music reader; her reading of musical scores is transcribed onto computer in Braille.
