"Golden Age of Baroque Trombone" recital at BYU Sept. 20

Guest artists Ken Shifrin, former principal trombone with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and Mike Hall, faculty at Old Dominion University, will present “The Golden Age of the Solo Baroque Trombone” at Brigham Young University Thursday, Sept. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Admission to this event is free. Shifrin and Hall will be assisted by Joseph Olson, piano; Will Kimball, alto and tenor trombone; and Zac Crawford, bass trombone.

The performance will begin with Biagio Marini’s “Canzona” followed by “Concerto in E-flat Major for Two Horns” by Antonio Rosetti. They will then play “Sonata No. 3 in A minor, opus 1” by Benedetto Marcello and then the finale from Georg Christoph Wagenseil’s “Concerto for Alto Trombone” before a brief intermission.

Following the intermission Hanisch’s “Allegro” from “Triple Concerto in E-flat” will be performed, followed by “Sonata” by Daniel Speer. “Achieved is the Glorious Work” from “The Creation” by Franz Joseph Haydn will be the final number in the performance.

Shifrin earned a doctoral degree in musicology from Oxford University and was the recipient of a British Academy Humanities Research Board Scholarship and the Oxford University Press’ Music and Letters Award. He was a member of the Atlantics, a popular rock band that performed for artists like Michael Jackson, Olivia Newton-John and Natalie Cole. He is a visiting professor of trombone at Prague Conservatoire of Music.

Hall serves as the literature reviews editor for the International Trombone Association. He previously served as a faculty member for the University of Kansas and Eastern Michigan University. He also has extensive background in commercial music: backing entertainers, playing in large- and small-group jazz settings, and performing in theatre and studio recording ensembles.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation

August 10, 2022
A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
