BYU Performing Arts Series hosts Triple Helix Trio Nov. 14

The Brigham Young University Performing Arts Series presents the Triple Helix Trio on Thursday (Nov. 14) at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall featuring Lois Shapiro on the piano, Bayla Keys on the violin and Rhonda Rider on the cello.

Tickets at $9 for the general public and $6 with a student or faculty ID are available in the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 378-4322 or at www.byu.edu/hfac.

The Trio will present a free pre-concert lecture, "Music that Conveys a Sense of Self, A Sense of Place" at 6:45 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Pianist Lois Shapiro describes this presentation as "a close encounter with the inner process in works by Beethoven, Brahms and Bright Sheng. Through a kind of musical alchemy, these composers conjure up a palpable experience of the inner workings of a consciousness, both of the individual self and the self of a culture."

In calling themselves Triple Helix, the artists were inspired by the notion of the double helix as the dynamic intertwining and interdependence of spiraling energies that generate life.

As a performing group, they saw a parallel in the partnership of violin, cello and piano. Each instrument is a potent voice in its own right, entrusted by the composer with its own share of "the genetic material" of the piece.

The Triple Helix Trio is sponsored in part by a grant from the Utah Arts Council Utah Performing Arts Tour.

While he loves the many invaluable benefits of youth sports, he laments that his children often miss family activities for practice or face pressures to compete in sports during the offseason. These concerns have fueled his collaboration with professors from disciplines across BYU’s campus to improve organized sport experiences for youth, parents and coaches.
