Nora Krohn and Nick Revel first engaged in Folie À Deux in June 2012 in the living room of their apartment in Queens. The pair has performed music spanning the Classical to the Contemporary eras in NYC, CT, and PA. Although the viola duo instrumentation is rare and repertoire is scarce, Nick and Nora continue their mission of discovering and performing unheard and unappreciated works. Their goal is to commission living composers, one day turning the viola duo delusion into an viable instrumentation.
