As part of MIM’s 10th Anniversary in 2020, MIM’s Music Theater will present the Global Masters Series, which celebrates the creativity and musicianship of artists at the pinnacle of their craft. Each performance brings a unique perspective to the question of why music matters, helping us understand the deep connections we all have to music.

Multiple Grammy Award–winner Victor Wooten hit the worldwide scene in 1990 as a founding member of the supergroup Béla Fleck and the Flecktones. Continuing to blaze a musical trail with the band, Wooten has also become widely known for his own Grammy-nominated solo recordings and tours. Wooten is considered one of the greatest bass players of all time and has a particularly enlightening take on the creative process and why music matters, which he brilliantly explores in his book, The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth Through Music.

On January 23, there will be a special two-part program reflecting the overarching theme of MIM’s 10th Anniversary. Blending music and words, Wooten will be joined by award-winning scientist, musician, and record producer Daniel Levitin, author of the number-one bestselling books This Is Your Brain on Music and The World in Six Songs. After a brief intermission, Levitin will join Wooten’s band for a concert. Following the concert, there will be an opportunity to ask questions and get signed copies of their books.
