Violist Tim MacDuff joined the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and its flagship string quartet,
the Quapaw Quartet, in 2019. Originally from upstate New York, Tim began his musical
studies with support from his public school teachers. He earned a Bachelor of Music degree
from the Crane School of Music under Dr. Shelly Tramposh and a Master of Music degree
from Rice University studying with James Dunham. After discovering a passion for
education, Tim completed a Doctorate in Musical Arts at the University of Maryland under
the guidance of his mentor Katherine Murdock. Tim’s doctoral work focused on the
relationship between music and written word.
Tim has performed with the National Repertory Orchestra, National Orchestral Institute,
Round Top, and Lake George festival orchestras. He has also served as a substitute musician
with New World Symphony. In 2017, Tim was awarded top prize in the University of
Maryland’s Concerto Competition and performed Ernest Bloch’s Suite 1919 with the
orchestra. Tim has also appeared as soloist with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra in
Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante.
As a chamber musician, Tim has performed across the D.C. area including performances at
the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, the Smithsonian’s Baird Theater, and the National
Cathedral. He regularly appears on the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra’s River Rhapsodies
chamber series at the Clinton Library in Little Rock. Tim has coached student chamber
groups at Manitou Springs Chamber Music Festival, Faulkner Chamber Music Festival,
Crane Youth Music Camp, and the University of Maryland.
In addition to joining the University of Arkansas faculty, Tim teaches students of the
