House of Time, known for its “fluency and command” (San Francisco Classical Voice) and "fine playing, cohesiveness and creativity" (Early Music America) is dedicated to both well-known and underperformed repertoire of the 17th through the 21st century played on period instruments. Members and guests include faculty and alumni of The Juilliard School, as well as prize winners of major international competitions. Using the instruments and techniques of the past to express the vivid passions in the music, House of Time has moved audiences and keeps them coming back for more. Critics have declared oboist, Gonzalo X. Ruiz, “one of only a handful of truly superb baroque oboists in the world” (Alte Musik Aktuell); Tatiana Daubek, is known for her "sleekly elegant playing" (Gazettes Long Beach) and soloistic precision (Early Music America).

Currently in their 7th season, House of Time is ensemble-in-residence at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in New York City. The ensemble has been presented by the Berkeley Early Music Festival, Czech Center New York, Early Music Festival: NYC, Music Before 1800, Michigan State University, San Diego and San Francisco Early Music Societies, The University Club in New York City, and the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments. Future appearances include concerts presented by Early Music Now in Milwaukee and St. John’s College in Santa Fe. House of Time is a continuous recipient of the New York State Council on the Arts grant. As a group and individuals, they continue to give free outreach concerts at Mount Sinai Concerts for Patients in New York City and may be seen giving impromptu pop-up concerts in casual venues including local cafes. House of Time is also on the roster of GEMS Live! Artists.
