Tim joined the string quartet behind gospel stars Keith and Kristyn Getty for the Kennedy Center stop of their Christmas 2015 tour.

In November 2015, Tim joined the orchestra for Stevie Wonder's Charlottesville, VA show.

In November 2015, Tim joined an ensemble at the University of Maryland to present David Lang's "Are You Experienced?"

In June 2015, Tim presented a program of works for unaccompanied cello, including several selections from the iconic Bach Suites, for an afternoon tea at the historic Cosmos Club in Washington, DC.

In January of 2015, Tim led the string quintet of the Arlington Philharmonic for their annual "Arlington Strings Day" presentation to the 6th graders of Arlington County Public Schools. It's an interactive educational program that Tim has developed over the years along with the county strings teachers, featuring repertoire from a variety of genres and historical periods.

Tim appeared December 6, 2014 with the Great Noise Ensemble, performing contemporary works by Mark Sylvester, David Lang, and Marc Mellits.

On November 16, 2014, Tim joined violinists Gavin Fallow and Mary Thulson, along with violist Yuri Tomenko, to present the Beethoven Op. 18 No. 1 and Mendelssohn Op. 13 quartets in recital in Annandale, VA.

Tim is a core member of the unconducted Ars Nova Chamber Orchestra, appearing most recently as principal cello for their November 1, 2014 concert, featuring Beethoven's 7th symphony and the Mendelssohn Hebrides overture.

In September of 2014, Tim developed and performed a house concert program for the Arlington Philharmonic, featuring a handful of Luigi Boccherini's lesser-known string quartets and discussing Boccherini's life and influences. Though he was a contemporary of Mozart and Haydn, Boccherini's quartet repertoire shows a broader variety of influences--partly because Boccherini spent much of his working life in the mountains near Madrid, away from the strict Viennese fashions of the day, writing for the court of the exiled Spanish Infante Don Luis.

On June 8, 2014, Tim had the honor of premiering Levan Iordanishvili's "Character" for solo cello as part of the Atlas Emerging Composers Forum in Washington, DC.
