This year’s music night offers us something really special: the musical duo of mathematician and violin virtuoso Corey Cerovsek together with his Finnish collaborator, the pianist Paavali Jumppanen. Their concert will take place at a beautiful location, as part of the Bridges 2016 Excursion Program:
