By performing quality concerts showcasing world-class musicians on period instruments, House of Time presents our classical music heritage in a way that not only entertains but also allows greater understanding of its cultural context. By replacing the traditional pre-concert lecture with personable and accessible remarks from the stage, the ensemble breaks down the barrier between performer and audience, and gives casual listeners as well as experts the opportunity to understand the intersection between musicology and performance. By committing to performing its series in the Washington Heights as well as Lincoln Center neighborhoods, and making tickets available and affordable through a variety of outlets, House of Time seeks to bring the musical jewels of the past and the thrill of live performance available to all New Yorkers.


In order to perform these concerts, we rely on you as listeners and supporters of our art. Not only does your support help to fund our world-class musicians, it also covers a multitude of other areas including bringing high quality music to different neighborhoods in Manhattan; venue and instrument rental; travel costs; promotional materials; the list goes on.

"The quality of the playing, the ensemble, and obvious joy you all had made for a wonderful experience for the audience.  Gonzalo's 'reverse engineering' of the Vivaldi was a hoot.  We are very familiar with the piece (too familiar!), and thought his conception and your execution made an old war horse fresh and exciting."

-Anonymous audience member 

"Hearing your trio sonatas is like listening to the music of friendship."

-Dennis Edemeka, Baroque music enthusiast 

"House of Time represents the epitome of the Early Music Renaissance now underway in New York City.  Historically informed techniques applied to period instruments, by highly educated players in an ever expanding repertoire, is the ensemble’s notable hallmark.  By always introducing their music with delightful discourse, and by seeking out new young talent, House of Time has placed itself clearly in the forefront of a movement that passionately seeks to make the past come alive today."

-Joseph J, Latona, Ph.D.

"Experiencing the wonderful HoT concerts at The Lounge in Washington Heights is the closest one can get to recreating the intimacy of an 18th century drawing room recital. Highly recommended."

-Richard Sterne, Shakespearean Actor 

"House of Time is a treasure.  Their thoughtful programming always features a delightful surprise or two, while the ensemble plays with great verve, passion and sheer joy, resulting in beautiful music played beautifully.  They are worthy of the widest possible audience."

-Neal Aponte, Ph.D.


"The concert was most interesting and most enjoyable! You and your fellow musicians offer wonderful music with such skill and obvious love, that sharing it with us is like having intimate access to your  world of discovery."

-Anonymous audience member 

"Hi HoT, I loved the concert tonight. I was very moved. This was the first HOT concert I attended and I will definitely return next season. I'm sure I will never forget tonight's concert. It was just beautiful!!"

-Anonymous audience member 

"I have so many versions of the Four Seasons, but your particular performance here feels so nuanced, drawn and pulled to perfection.  Not being a musician, I don’t know what liberties musicians take with the music, but some of the passages seem teased and extended, shaped by feeling. I was deeply moved."

-Dana White
