Listen to audio clips of the Hutchins Consort.
The Hutchins Consort is the world’s only professional ensemble performing on the eight scaled violins designed and built by Dr. Carleen Hutchins. The instruments of the Violin Octet cover the entire range of written music in the voice of the violin, from the enormous contrabass to the tiny treble.
The mission of the Hutchins Consort is to provide unique musical and educational performances with the eight scaled violins of Dr. Carleen Hutchins, which are the culmination of 500 years of research into the acoustics of violin family instruments; to perform pieces specifically written for this ensemble as well as arrangements of traditional repertory; to demonstrate the distinctions between these and traditional instruments; to facilitate the composition and arrangement of music specifically for the sonic palette that the instruments and their performers create; and to make performances available to a wide and diverse audience.
