“The Arts, New Growth Theory, and Economic Development,” a symposium hosted by the Brookings Institute and the National Endowment for the Arts, Washington, DC, May 10, 2012.
Looking to connect his love of history and music, Dr. Maloney studied Renaissance and Baroque lute with Dr. Douglas Freundlich at the Longy School of Music of Bard College. In addition to working with his own ensembles—Mille Corde, Ensemble Trident, and Arcadia—he has performed with the Harvard University Baroque Chamber Orchestra, Boston University Opera Institute, Revels, Renaissonics, and Cappella Clausura. Maloney also plays lavta and hand percussion in concerts of early Greek music with bass/baritone Panayotis Terzakis. The Boston Globe called him “an excellent scholar, artist, and gentleman all at once.”
Maloney spent seven years working as an arts administrator for the Boston Early Music Festival and the New England Conservatory, and as general manager of the internationally renowned early music ensemble, the Boston Camerata.
Maloney served as a research associate at the Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University. His dissertation examined the policy process and impact of cultural economic development initiatives in three mid-sized Massachusetts municipalities. In 2012, he presented his findings at a joint National Endowment for the Arts/Brookings Institute conference on the Arts, New Growth Theory, and Economic Development in Washington, D.C., and at the European Network for Cultural Administration Training Centers (ENCATC) annual conference in London, England.
For the past six years, Maloney has served on the board of directors of the Association of Arts Administration Educators (AASA), and he is co-chair of the AASA Research and International committees. He also serves on the board of Mass Creative, a major arts advocacy organization in Massachusetts. He was recently elected to the board of directors of the European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centers (ENCATC) in Brussels, Belgium (the largest consortium of arts administration faculty members and programs in the world).

In a 1963 speech at Amherst College, John F. Kennedy said:
"I see little of more importance to the future of our country and our civilization than full recognition of the place of the artist. If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him. Art is not a form of propaganda, it is a form of truth and establishes the basic human truths which must serve as the touchstones of our judgment."
