British-Polish violinist Magdalena Loth-Hill learned locally in Cumbria before accepting a place at Chetham's School of Music to study with Jan Repko. She continued her studies at the Royal College of Music, London, with Itzhak Rashkovsky, Laura Samuel, Adrian Butterfield and Lucy Russell. Magdalena graduated with first-class honours and went on to gain a Master’s degree with Distinction. She was awarded the 2015/16 Mills Williams Junior Fellowship at the RCM, a post she held while studying for an Artist Diploma in baroque violin. In March 2016, Magdalena was presented with the Mills Williams Medal.

At the RCM, Magdalena performed Bach’s E major concerto, Brandenburg Concerti No. 4 and 5 and the Bach Double Violin Concerto. She played the Mendelssohn and Bruch Concerti with the City of Carlisle Orchestra and has toured across Europe, and in North and South America, including Bolivia, where her two solo recitals as 'Artist of the Festival' officially opened the 2016 Misiones de Chiquitos Festival.

Magdalena has recorded with the Academy of Ancient Music, Florilegium and The English Concert. As soloist, she recorded works for the British Library's ‘Georgians Revealed’ exhibition and pieces for the ABRSM syllabus. She performs with The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, English Baroque Soloists and The English Concert among others.

Magdalena plays a late 17th century Venetian instrument, by an unknown maker.
