Margaret Walkup is an inpatient physical therapist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. She grew up in Westchester, NY and began her cello studies at age eight in a public school music program. At that age, her reason for picking the cello was that she would always have an excuse to sit down.
Though Margaret has since come to appreciate the joys of running, cycling, and hiking, she still enjoys taking the time to sit down and play the cello. Margaret has performed in Area-All-State orchestras throughout high school, and in chamber music groups and the all-campus orchestra during her undergraduate and graduate years at Boston University.
