Connecticut’s Own: Folie à Deux
Sunday, Oct. 28, 4 – 5 p.m.
Fà2 (Folie à Deux): A psychological condition where two individuals in a close relationship share the same fantastical delusion. New York City based violists Nora Krohn and Nick Revel first engaged in this viola delusion in June 2012 in the living room of their apartment in Queens. Although the viola duo instrumentation is rare and repertoire is scarce, Nick and Nora continue their mission of discovering and performing unheard and under-appreciated works. Their goal is to commission living composers, one day turning the viola duo delusion into a viable instrumentation. Nick Revel is a graduate of Wilton High School and the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. Nora Krohn, a native of Baltimore, MD and a graduate of Brown University and SUNY Purchase, plays regularly with the Chelsea Symphony, Ridgefield Symphony, Chappaqua Orchestra and Allentown Symphony. The duo will be performing works for two violas. No charge. Registration highly recommended.
