Shes just so fun and has an amazing attitude about everything, McDuffie said of his sister. We have a good time. McDuffie, who has performed with most of the major orchestras in the world, plays 30 to 50 concerts a year these days. He spends eight weeks each year in Italy for the Rome Chamber Music Festival, which he founded 10 years ago. He also travels home to Macon each month to work with students and faculty at the Center for Strings. The students in the program, about 26 to 27, work with 11 faculty members who all hold positions in some of the major orchestras or performance groups in the country, McDuffie said. They have private lessons and master classes, of course, but the students also take part in a curriculum that includes coursework in the humanities, business and contract law.
