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.
