Described as “nothing short of dazzling” and playing “with impeccable bowing and intonation” by South Florida Classical Review, Margeaux Maloney currently holds the Associate Concertmaster position in the Reno Chamber Orchestra and served as an Acting Section Violinist with the San Diego Symphony for the 2022-2023 season. She has performed as a substitute violinist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Diego Symphony, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Kansas City Symphony, and Charleston Symphony.

Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Margeaux began studying the violin at age five and had her first concerto performance at age nine. Since then, she has received awards and recognitions at regional and national levels. She earned her degrees from The Juilliard School and University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music, where she studied with Lewis Kaplan and Martin Chalifour, respectively. Margeaux then went on to be a Violin Fellow at the New World Symphony in Miami Beach, Florida. During her time with the New World Symphony, she served as concertmaster and principal second and performed as a soloist with the orchestra.

Margeaux has performed alongside members of the Tokyo String Quartet, Eroica Trio, Dover Quartet, Attacca Quartet and Vega Quartet and has also been coached by members of the Cleveland, Juilliard and Formosa string quartets, and pianists Jerome Lowenthal, Julian Martin and Conor Hanick. She has performed with various contemporary ensembles and several premieres, most recently the world premiere of Carlos Simons’ “Wake Up: A Concerto for Orchestra” and the US Premiere of Matthias Pintscher’s Piano Concerto “Nur” for solo piano and ensemble. She has performed in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Jacobs Music Center in San Diego, The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park, The Hollywood Bowl, Alice Tully Hall, Avery Fisher Hall (now David Geffen Hall) at Lincoln Center, Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre, Sapporo Concert Hall Kitara, Tokyo Suntory Hall, The Usher Hall in Edinburgh, Scotland, National Concert Hall in Dublin, Ireland and Teatro Metropolitano José Gutiérrez Gómez in Medellín, Colombia.

As a teacher, Margeaux has coached students from the Nashville Symphony’s Accelerando program and the Iberacademy in Medellín, Colombia. In February 2020, she had the opportunity to travel to Medellín, Colombia to teach and perform with the young musicians of the Iberacademy and The Orquesta Filarmónica de Medellín. She is currently a violin coach for Mira Mesa High School's orchestra program in San Diego.

Outside of music, Margeaux is passionate about photography, dancing, swimming, traveling and the great outdoors; she hopes to one day hike the entire Pacific Crest Trail.
