In 2013 CutTime Productions won a $30,000 challenge grant from the Knight Foundation to expand the ongoing Classical Revolution Detroit series to three events each month. These events feature reading sessions of standard chamber music, CutTime compositions and symphonic transcriptions with small ensembles in bars. clubs, restaurants and coffeehouses to pioneer true and lasting connections with a wider, curious and deserving community. We are currently campaigning to raise matching funds to begin the project in March 2014.

Crain's annually recognizes entrepreneurs who are noteworthy for their innovation, problem-solving ability, job creation or sheer relentlessness. Winners are divided into revenue categories, with another for social entrepreneurs, which I won. Social entrepreneurs use business ventures as a means to solve social problems while creating jobs. I'm working to share the beautiful power of classical music with people who avoid it altogether.
This was the inaugural year for these annual fellowships with $25,000 awarded for the creative arts. I submitted three musical scores for string sextet of Essay After Sibelius, Mighty Love and Highland Park, MI: City of Trees.
This 20-minute composition for full orchestra, which began in a dream, first won a reading by DSO and Maestro Thomas Wilkins at the Unisys African-American Composers Readings in 2003. The work was selected for a full debut at the annual Classical Roots concerts. Detroit Free Press Music Critic Mark Stryker wrote in review, "Robinson, a bassist in the DSO, is an armchair composer with promise and a taste for fleshy romantic textures and orchestration." The premiere of this first major composition encouraged me to continue writing and marks the pivot of my career.
I won $1,000 and a performance of Bottesini Double Bass Concerto in b-minor with Arthur Cohn conducting in 1987.
Freelanced as Principal Bass of both Canton and Akron Symphony Orchestras
Played a half recital in my junior year, a full recital my senior year and another half recital at graduation just for my family.
