Margaret Griebling-Haigh

Margaret Griebling-Haigh began her training in composition and music theory in early childhood with her parents, Mary Ann and Stephen T. Griebling. She studied piano with Margaret Baxtresser and oboe with Harvey McGuire and John Mack of the Cleveland Orchestra. She was principal oboist of the Akron Youth Symphony from 1976-8 under Music Director Paul Biss, and won concerto competitions with both the Akron Youth Symphony and the University Circle Youth Orchestra. She earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music with Robert Sprenkle and a Masters degree from the San Francisco Conservatory with Marc Lifschey. Before graduating from high school, she had already won many awards in composition, including a grant from BMI (Broadcast Music Inc.) in 1975, and First Prize in the National Federation of Music Clubs' Competition for New Orchestral Works in 1978. She has received commissions from the Huntingdon Trio of Philadelphia
