About The Artist

Over the past 6 years, Tim Fain and Nicholas Britell have had the remarkable opportunity to collaborate on a number of very special film projects. This evening’s program is a celebration of their work together creating cinematic moments through the interaction of music and picture. In addition to their work in such films as the Oscar-winners Moonlight and 12 Years A Slave, Tim and Nicholas are proud to perform selections from many of the film and multimedia projects that they have been a part of, plus selections of other music that they love.
