CutTime® has expanded its adaptive power for classical with a string ensemble of 6 plus optional woodwind solos and percussion featuring award-winning compositions by its founder-director Rick Robinson. Formerly a member of a major orchestra, his focus is on surprising both veteran and new audiences with lively classical hits, his adventurous new works, spoken insights and audience activities. 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 counterpoints sometimes mixed with funky urban grooves making a smooth on-ramp for newcomers. They perform in clubs and schools and even with breakdancers.
