Presenter Details

  • Name: Nathan Felix
  • Nathan Felix (born 1981) is a Mexican-American classical music composer.  His symphonies have been performed in Bulgaria, Portugal, Denmark, Mongolia and the United States with a performance of his 2nd symphony, Neon Heaven, at SPOT Festival in Aarhus.

    His first large work for orchestra was featured by the BBC and later made into a documentary titled, The Curse & The Symphony. The award winning documentary has screened at 46 film festivals, and was picked up by Gaiam TV.  In 2015, PBS affiliate KLRU featured Felix's 6-Piano Project on an episode of Arts in Context, in which he restored abandoned pianos to premiere his works written for six pianos and then donated the pianos to lower income schools in Austin. 6-Pianos was nominated for a Lone Star Emmy in 2016. The 6-Piano Project has since been commissioned in San Antonio (2016), Barcelona (2017) and Melbourne (2017).  

    In addition, Felix is the director for the classical music residency, Keep Composers Weird, the co-creative director for Indie Orchestra Night and music director for the choir, From Those Who Follow the Echoes, who most recently premiered Felix’s "Opera on a Bus."
