Icelandic neo-classical composer Ólafur Arnalds returns to the intimate space of The Cedar with his new project, For Now I Am Winter. More complex than the previous records, the new album was produced with help from Nico Muhly on the orchestral arrangements, and vocalist Arnór Dan Arnarson (Agent Fresco) sings on three tracks. Expect a truly transporting evening of music from an artist of ever-growing stature, yet one who retains a down to earth sense of humor and balanced perspective.

Opening tonight will be Moon & Pollution, the new project by singer Molly Dean and producer/drummer Graham O'Brien (No Bird SIng).

This summer, keep your cool inside at the newly air-conditioned Cedar!
