New York Piano Trio presents free BYU recital Feb. 24

The School of Music at Brigham Young University will present the New York Piano Trio in a free piano recital Thursday, Feb. 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. The program will feature new works for piano by American composers, funded in part by the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition and the Laycock Center for Creative Collaboration in the Arts at BYU.

Three of New York’s finest virtuoso performers — Curtis Macomber (violin), Chris Finckel (cello) and Stephen Gosling (piano) — will come together to present a program of contemporary chamber music for piano trio and other instrumental combinations.

The recital will feature the Trio by Charles Ives, a masterpiece of the early 20th century, and will also include works by Luciano Berio and by two prominent living American composers, Augusta Read Thomas and Wayne Peterson. BYU faculty clarinetist Jaren Hinckley and Salt Lake flutist Carlton Vickers join the guest artists for Peterson's Scherzo.

During their visit to BYU, the trio will also work with BYU composition students, reading and recording student arrangements and discussing contemporary music performance and the creative process.

For more information about the recital, contact Ken Crossley at (801) 422-9348 or ken_crossley@byu.edu, or visit byuarts.com.

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.
