The Museum of Making Music presents a special performance by the Hutchins Consort. Playing on eight scaled violins designed and built by famed luthier Dr. Carleen Hutchins, the octet is based in Southern California and brings together a group of extraordinary virtuosi.

The group plays on instruments ranging from the tiny treble violin to the large bass violin and produces an astonishing pallet of sounds.

The Hutchins Consort plays a variety of musical genres, from the Middle Ages and Renaissance to the music of modern masters. With original compositions and transcriptions commissioned by the Catgut Acoustical Society for the octet of violins, and new transcriptions by members of the Consort, The Hutchins Consort displays a breadth and depth of skill that few traditional groups match and a sound that is truly unique.

Tickets are $10 for general admission, $7 for Museum members. For tickets, please order online or call 760/438-5996.
