Tracy Silverman, award-winning rock/jazz violinist considered one of the world's best musicians on the electric violin, will present a free lecture recital at 1:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17, in the MSU Procrastinator Theater.

Silverman will perform, talk about jazz improvisation and music in general.

Following his appearance at MSU, Silverman will perform at the Alberta Bair Theater in Billings as part of the Montana All-State Music Festival.

Silverman studied at the Juilliard School and is a versatile performer in jazz, contemporary music and rock styles on the electric violin, often performing on six-string fretted and fretless instruments. He recorded a solo album for Windham Hill records. BBC Radio has called him "The greatest living exponent of the electric violin."

While the event is free, there is limited seating and those who wish to attend should arrive early.

The event is sponsored by "Arts Without Boundaries," a non-profit based in Billings and Bozeman.
