Buster Keaton's "College" featured at annual BYU Silent Film Night Nov. 4

The Brigham Young University School of Music will present the annual Silent Film Night with organist Mike Ohman Saturday, Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Admission will be $9 for the general public, $7.50 for alumni and $6 for students. Tickets can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, by calling (801) 422-7664 or by visiting performances.byu.edu.

Mike Ohman, associate director of the School of Music, will provide live organ accompaniment to “College,” a 1927 black-and-white slapstick film starring Buster Keaton. The film will be presented as it was meant to be seen, with complementary music from the organ.

“College” focuses on Keaton’s brainy freshman, who falls head-over-heels in love with a beautiful coed. When she is wooed by a handsome athlete, Keaton hits the field to show his mettle with hilarious results.

For more information, contact Mike Ohman at (801) 422-3149.

Going cashless to prevent COVID-19 was useless, new BYU microbiology study finds

A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
