Unique Marly Music Concert

Join the MFA St Pete for one of the unique Marly Music Concert. A father-son collaborative team, Eric and Martin Demaine fold, pleat, and twist paper into powerful sculptural forms that illustrate the intriguing and profound connections between mathematics and origami. While they do their amazing art, John C. O’Leary III, a Mexican American jazz pianist, composer and neuroscientist will accompany them. Together, the three scientists/artists will create a performance piece based on the intersecting notions of left and right brain, as part of our expanding Marly Music programming for 2019. 

Tickets are issued on a first come, first served basis. Tickets include general Museum admission. $1615 for Marly Music Society Members. $15 for Students with current ID and $25 for Adult Non-Marly Music Society Members.

This unique program is ideally suited to the Museum of Fine Art’s current ongoing exhibit. The “Above the Fold” exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg demonstrates the extraordinary power and potential of contemporary origami. Paper is transformed into breathtaking sculpture, large-scale installations and conceptual works that express contemporary social, political, and aesthetic ideas. The exhibit will continue through September 22. The Museum is located at 255 Beach Drive NE in St. Petersburg.

The Marly Music Society is a support group of the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg that believes great music and fine musicians complement the visual arts beautifully displayed at the MFA. Each year, Marly Music presents a stunning concert series featuring a global roster of renowned artists performing in a variety of genres, including classical, chamber, jazz & world music.

All Marly Music Society concerts take place on Sundays 2-4 pm at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg (in the Marly Room); Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students and Marly Music Society Members. Tickets include admission to the museum, and are available online or at our Admission desk.
