Violinist Michael MacLaughlin has lived and worked as a freelance performer and music educator across Texas for over 10 years.  He received both a Bachelor’s Degree (2011) and Master’s Degree (2019) from Baylor University, and has since established himself as an active member of Waco’s music scene. As an orchestral musician, Michael has performed with the Baylor Symphony Orchestra, Temple Symphony Orchestra, the Waco Symphony Orchestra, the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra, and the Abilene Philharmonic. An avid chamber musician, Michael has also organized and performed in several chamber music concerts including the inaugural Clear Lake Chamber Ensemble performance in 2015, as well as serving as the founder of the annual Academie Musique Scholarship Fundraiser concert series, which has raised thousands of dollars in scholarship funds for students who are otherwise unable to afford private instruction. Michael has also been invited to participate in numerous summer programs, including the prestigious Heifetz International Music Institute, the Round Top Festival Institute, and the National Orchestral Institute. In addition to an active performing schedule, Michael is also deeply involved in music education, maintaining a studio of over 30 private students from ages 3 to 18. In the fall of 2020, Michael will be relocating to Kansas City, Missouri to begin his doctoral studies in violin performance under the instruction of Professor Benny Kim at the University of Missouri Kansas City.
