Created within a major symphony orchestra by award-winning bassist-composer Rick Robinson, CutTime® spun off its two very unique ensembles to develop new listeners for symphonic music across the country. CutTime Players is a mixed octet featuring symphonic classics, while CutTime Simfonica has strings and percussion (4-8) featuring neo-romantic new works and yet more classical hits. CutTime ensembles surprise both veteran and new audiences with intimacy, passion, context, unusual holiday programs and real participation. Several of Robinson's new works blend in urban pop grooves to draw new listeners deep into the classical styles. They also dial informality in or out according to the presenter, to be ideal for clubs, churches and schools.
