Subject: Wonderful Music and Patter

This is a "Math Songs" concert, and is excellent.  These are all songs I've never heard before, about calculus and algebra and mathematics applied to the social sciences.  A great version of That's Mathematics! is given - it has original melody by Lehrer, as he explained that the tune he originally used for a parody was denied authorization - and a verse referencing the solution of Fermat's Last Theorum that was found in the mid-90s.

Wonderful to see him still enjoying performances!
