Cut Circle presents “gravity-defying” performances of Renaissance polyphony. Reimagining early music as a site of gritty, intense experiences, we embrace energetic tempi, surprising dynamic contrasts, and bold, confident singing. As a non-profit organization we give concerts, organize workshops, and publish recordings for students, scholars, and general audiences alike.


Coming soon: a blog about current projects, upcoming events, and thoughts about performing Renaissance music.
