CutTime® has developed its adaptive power for classical with a string ensemble of 4 or 6, with woodwind solo or percussion options to feature award-winning compositions by founding director Rick Robinson. Formerly a member of a major orchestra, his focus now is on surprising veteran and new audiences with lively symphonic hits, his campy new works, passion, insights, interviews and games. Like their older sibling CutTime Players®, CutTime Simfonica® mixes a broad variety of familiar symphonic, piano, chamber and pops. Players features more holiday programs, while Simfonica features accessible works alternating with funky urban grooves. They dial the informality in or out according to the presenter to be perfect for clubs, churches or school
