Early life and education
A native of Santa Monica, California, violinist Tim Fain is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where he studied with Victor Danchenko, and The Juilliard School, where he worked with Robert Mann. Before Curtis, Fain studied with Eduard Schmieder in Los Angeles. The “charismatic young violinist with a matinee idol profile, strong musical instincts, and first rate chops” (Boston Globe) was featured as the sound of Richard Gere ’s violin in Bee Season. As The Washington Post recently raved, “Fain has everything he needs for a first-rate career.”
He made his New York concerto debut at Alice Tully Hall with Gerard Schwarz and the New York Chamber Symphony, and at Lincoln Center ’s Mostly Mozart Festival with the Orchestra of St. Luke's. Performing works from Beethoven and Tchaikovsky to Richard Danielpour and Philip Glass, he has been soloist with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra of Mexico and Oxford Symphony Orchestra, and with the Brooklyn Philharmonic. He appeared as soloist with the Philip Glass Ensemble at Carnegie Hall in a concert version of Einstein on the Beach, and gave a special performance of the Beethoven Violin Concerto at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra. Other recent and upcoming performances include appearances with the Champaign Urbana Symphony Orchestra, the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra, Illinois Symphony Orchestra and the Maryland Symphony Orchestra, as well as recitals for the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society and in Utah, Maryland, Syracuse and elsewhere throughout the United States.
