02/13/2018 6:04 pm

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.
