BYU artists, Sonolumina Ensemble plan Jan. 25 recital

The School of Music at Brigham Young University will present an evening of chamber music performed by faculty members and guest artists from the Sonolumina Ensemble in a concert titled “An Evening of Music for Clarinet and Strings” Tuesday, Jan. 25, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

The recital is free, and everyone is welcome to attend.

Faculty artists for the ensemble include BYU’s Alexander Woods on the violin and Julie Bevan on the cello. They will be joined by Sonolumina’s Russell and Leslie Harlow on the clarinet and viola, respectively, and Rebecca Moench on the violin.

The quintet will play selections from Schumann’s “Abendlied,” Tchaikovsky’s “Herbstlied,” Baermann’s “Adagio,” Glazunov’s “Oriental Reverie” and Taneyev’s “Canzona.” After an intermission, they will perform a finale piece by Glazunov titled “Quatour Slave,” op. 26.

The Sonolumina Ensemble is comprised of freelance musicians as well as members of the Utah Symphony. In 2005, the Deseret News reported that the ensemble, formerly known as the Cathedral Chamber Orchestra, played with “lucidity, fluency and articulate eloquence” and “wholly lived up to its name.” The group’s title is derived from "sonoluminescence,” a scientific term that refers to the phenomenon of sound that emits light within a liquid.

For more information about the performance, contact Julie Bevan at (801) 422-2187 or julie_bevan@byu.edu, or visit byuarts.com. For more information about the ensemble, visit www.sonolumina.com.

BYU engineering students are testing radar to track polar bears aboveground. If successful, the team’s work would mark a significant step forward in scientists’ ability to track mother polar bears during winter, when they den and give birth to their cubs beneath dense snowpack. Locating and protecting bear dens is important for conservation efforts.

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

May 12, 2022
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.
