When musicians get together, backstage laughs and gaffes give way to flights of imagination. Add science to the mix and the result is a heady brew of intellectual and emotional exploration. Dr. John Hildebrand, neuroscientist and former professional musician, and Dr. Fan, who surprisedher scientist-mathematician parents by becoming a pianist, engage in a free flowing dialogue exploring the shared worlds of science and music, how musicians are really brain surgeons and why no one is immune to the great and powerful interval of a third.
Tickets are $275 each ($165 is a tax-deductible donation to Confluencenter) and include the salon-style presentation by Dr. Fan and Dr. Hildebrand as well as cocktail, hors d’oeuvres and a three-course dinner at Hacienda del Sol.
If you cannot attend, perhaps you can send one of our Graduate Fellows to the dinner for a tax-deductible donation of $110!
