Violinist Tim Fain

Used by permission.

Violinist Tim Fain has all the musicianship necessary to play the major works in the classical repertoire, but there is not even a hint of self-importance or standoffishness that can come with that. His thoughtful, down-to-earth conversation make you feel like old friends.

Besides the world's concert stages, Tim is equally at home working with film directors; having contributed to The Black Swan and more recently, Twelve Years a Slave. When Chiwetel Ejiofor is playing the violin in the film, that's Tim you're hearing.

I spoke to Tim Fain about his film work and his upcoming performance with the Wheeling Symphony this Friday.
