CutTime Productions Has Key Sponsorship Renewed

Broadsword Extends Its Support for the Introduction of Classical Music to New Audiences

Detroit, MD - January 16, 2013 - CutTime Productions, LLC, an artistic venture committed to connecting curious music lovers with the beauty and power of classical music, today announced the extension of their strategic partnership with Broadsword Solutions Corporation (Broadsword), an engineering strategy and performance improvement firm that uses Agile methods to implement CMMI-based solutions that improve software development and organized processes.

Led by former-Detroit Symphony Orchestra bassist Rick Robinson, CutTime Productions uses two signature ensembles and a publishing house to make classical music more accessible to the masses.  Robinson has arranged over a hundred famous symphonic and classical works for these ensembles and composed several that blend classical with urban pop to refresh the genre and touch new audiences with these styles.

"On behalf of curious music-lovers, particularly young people who haven't learned to appreciate the beauty and power of classical music, we are grateful for the continued generosity of our partner, Broadsword," Robinson said.  "Broadsword's support helps CutTime Productions reach more audiences nationally with our music and methods, encouraging a wider variety of listeners to open up to classical music."

"For CutTime Productions, music is about engineering the craft, using science and discipline along with creativity to synthesize something new," Jeff Dalton, President of Broadsword, said.  "In that sense, CutTime Productions does for classical music what Broadsword does for software engineering.  We are proud to continue to be a partner in their success."

Headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, CutTime Productions is on a mission to shift the paradigm of the orchestra establishment while articulating the surprising value of classical music to everyday Americans.  More information and samples can be found at
