A new driving force in Nordic world music is the young Danish trio, Dreamers’ Circus. Contemporary and endlessly innovative in their approach, they draw inspiration from the deep traditions of folk music in the region and reshape them into something bright, shiny and new.

Dreamers’ Circus are: Nikolaj Busk (DK) on piano and accordion, Ale Carr (SWE) on Nordic cittern and Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (DK), also of the Danish String Quartet, on violin.

Dreamers’ Circus display inventiveness and talent in their approach to performances that include music from Denmark and Sweden as well as Iceland, Finland and the far reaches of the windswept Faroe Islands. The ensemble has won five prestigious Danish Music Awards and toured throughout Europe and beyond, with performances in Japan and the Sydney Opera House in Australia. Their first US tour in 2019 opened ears, eyes, minds and hearts. The trio collaborates regularly with the Danish String Quartet and the Copenhagen Philharmonic and performs with other orchestras.

Dreamers’ Circus views their traditional roots as a point of departure and know tradition should not be a straitjacket. This adventurous attitude, coupled with their outstanding musicianship, has brought the band to the forefront of the Nordic folk and world music scene.

McDougal Lecture in Mathematics

Data Science Applications in the Major Leagues

Data Science lies at the intersection of mathematics, statistics, and computer science. Specifically, it is the practice of using data to try to understand and solve real-world problems. In the last decade, both advances in computing and access to exponentially more data has led this field to boom throughout the private sector. Data science is currently being used to assist decision-makers in Major League Baseball at the league and club levels. In this talk, we will discuss three applications of data science for Business Operations at the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club. 

Thursday, January 20, 2022

4:30 – 5:30 pm
