The BYU School of Music presents a Saxophone Chamber Night on Friday, Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the University Parkway Center. The event is free and the public is welcome to attend.
The program includes pieces such as “Fugue IV” from
Art of the Fugue by J.S. Bach, “The Balcony Scene” from
West Side Story and “OK-OK” by Lansing McLoskey, an LDS composer teaching at the University of Miami.
“There will be some music that is very accessible to audience ears, along with one number that will stretch the ears a bit,” said Daron Bradford, director of the performance.
The group is also adding three more saxophonists for a septet led by BYU student composer Jamie Erekson.
BYU student Jonah Hoskins sang his way into $20,000 and a winner of the 2020 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions this weekend, one of the most prestigious opera competitions for young adults.
BYU’s favorite nine-man a cappella group is gearing up to bring its music to a much bigger stage. With the release of their latest music video, “What Child is This?,” Vocal Point has announced that they’ve signed a recording deal with Decca Gold, Universal Classics, US, part of Universal Music Group (UMG), the world’s largest music company.
Hands shaky and sweaty, BYU senior Catherine Boyack cleared her dry mouth. She lifted her flute and played. She had been working for months to polish her piece, but she knew it wasn’t her best performance. She left the stage of the convention hall defeated, believing she wouldn’t make it to the final round of the biggest competition of her career.
