How can CutTime enrich our corporate family?


Successful corporations stimulate both their internal and external communities with imaginative arts projects that nourish with access and understanding to live healthy, happy and more productive lives. Classical music has the potential to unlock expressions of personal meaning, intellectual insight and positive spirits for humanity. Our venerated music institutions can make these available outside the arts bubbles and create thousands of new jobs doing it. CutTime® teaches what, how and why.

CutTime creates cultural change with mildly entertaining and informative, hosted events, thanks to RIck Robinson’s start in a bold African-American family, having traveled the world, having held a long position in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and having developed an effective library and methods that translate inspiration across differences.

With rich  transcriptions, new music, clever analogies and fun participation, CutTime is the only organization in the world dedicated to presenting largely symphonic music as chamber music; and then the only one bringing it into restaurants, offices, homes, schools, churches, even the streets. It places audience at the center of music-making as never before in classical music.

Several corporations, such as Hearst Publications, Delphi Automotive, Lear Corporation and The Platform have booked CutTime ensembles for special events and for HQ lunch music. We always teach the bit of music history that lights up your employees.

Your company will want to also sponsor public events that include signage, stage recognition and display of information. You may prefer to consider operational support for year-round acknowledgement on our website, any printed programs and VIP access to our artists and events. Our new restaurant series will align corporate messaging with affluent customers where they can dine on seafood and Saint-Seans. Call for more details.

CutTime’s ongoing Classical Revolution Detroit series, which in 2015 won $60,000 through the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, has begun its sixth season of casual community chamber music events in local clubs. This project grant expands the series across the city threefold and is ideal for local visibility and is ready to reach out across the Midwest with a new name. Imagine young, colorful crowds peacefully hearing themselves reflected in classical music around your corporate logo.

We understand that all people can access the classical arts, under the right conditions. CutTime then creates enough of them to matter. Please contact us for information how to make this lasting difference to your communities.
