Beauty and Logic

Friday, November 19, 2021, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

 

How can mathematics be beautiful? Does music have an underlying logic? What does one reveal about the other?

Join acclaimed saxophonist, composer, and mathematician, Marcus G. Miller for an unforgettable performance as he leads us through an exploration of these questions.

A long-time collaborator of Grace Farms Foundation, Marcus has performed at the Obama White House, Madison Square Garden, The World Economic Forum at Davos, The Montreux Jazz Festival, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert alongside Jon Batiste, and at Carnegie Hall.

 

“When I first heard Marcus play he was about 8 or 9 years old and I was very impressed. He is undoubtedly one of the most talented musicians that I have heard in my almost 50 years in the music business. As a young composer, arranger, producer and musician, Marcus ranks with the best.”

— Curtis Hudson: Guitarist, Producer, Songwriter (Madonna, Pure Energy)

 

About Marcus G. Miller

Marcus Miller began studying saxophone at age nine and developed a passion that put him on stage at 13. With gifts extending beyond music, he graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Mathematics. After a short stint at a major hedge fund he moved to New York City to pursue music. He soon developed a reputation as a versatile and virtuosic player, while studying music production and engineering under Grammy-Winning Engineer “Bassy” Bob Brockman (Notorious B.I.G, Herbie Hancock, D’Angelo).

Marcus has performed at the Obama White House, Madison Square Garden, The World Economic Forum at Davos, The Montreux Jazz Festival, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert alongside Jon Batiste, and Carnegie Hall. In addition, he has worked with jazz giants ELEW and Jazzmeia Horn, as well as major artists like The Fugees and Madonna.

Marcus maintains his interest in mathematics and physics by giving talks and performances that combine Math and Music. He has been featured at TEDSummit 2019, TEDxOttawa 2019, Brown University, University of Georgia, and University of Michigan. He hopes to encourage people to become more aware of the potential for mathematics and music to serve as routes to personal, spiritual, and community development.
