Support CutTime

CutTime is a shortcut into classical music and the leading artists performing symphonic music as small, flexible, popular ensembles.

We serve multiple projects, often with a triple mission to engage community, develop audience and students for New Classical. We want to make classical music, and esp. symphonic music, available for new listeners. Help us train the next generation of musicians how to bypass the barriers that repel a wider community from discovering this community treasure.
