ROCKFORD, Ill. — Rockford University’s Spring 2018 Forum Series continues with a visit from a New York City-based jazz pianist on Tuesday, Feb. 27.

Fascinating Algorithms: Pianist Dan Tepfer 
Tuesday, Feb. 27, 3 p.m.
Maddox Theatre, Clark Arts Center 

New York City-based jazz pianist Dan Tepfer will discuss the intersection of science and art in music, in particular the balance of intuition and emotion with the mathematical and algorithmic. At a more personal level, he will talk about how, as a performer and composer, he has opened up new avenues of creativity in his work by integrating mathematical structures, from simple processes to fractals, into his music.

With the exception of Performing Arts productions, the Forum Series is free of charge. Events take place on the Rockford University campus, 5050 East State Street, Rockford. Tickets are required and can be obtained by contacting the Box Office at 815-226-4100 or boxoffice@rockford.edu.

This semester’s Forum Series continues through late April. View the full lineup at www.Rockford.edu/forum.

ROCKFORD, Ill. —Rockford University’s Spring 2018 Forum Series continues Feb. 22-25 with Performing Arts’ production of Shakespeare’s Richard III.

Play: Richard III 
Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 22-24, 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Feb. 25, 2 p.m.
Maddox Theatre, Clark Arts Center 

King Edward is on the throne, England is at peace, and all is well. But don’t worry – it won’t be that way for long because Richard is “discontented.” Gripping and outrageous, Shakespeare’s Richard III is the tale of a ruthless, power-crazed Machiavellian who lies and cheats his way to the highest seat in the land through charm, deception, and force of presence.

Forum Series take place on the Rockford University campus, 5050 East State Street, Rockford. Tickets are required and can be obtained by contacting the Box Office at 815-226-4100 or boxoffice@rockford.edu.
