VENUE CHANGE: United States Army Field Band Brass Quintet at BYU Jan. 31

The United States Army Field Band Brass Quintet will visit Brigham Young University for a special recital and master class Monday, Jan. 31, at 5 p.m. in the Pardoe Theatre, not E-250 Harris Fine Arts Center as was previously announced.

The group will perform its recital, featuring classical music, starting at 5 p.m., followed by a master class in brass chamber music at 6 p.m., where band members will critique two BYU brass ensembles. Admission to both events is free.

The Army’s official brass quintet is visiting BYU as a guest artist from Fort George G. Meade in Maryland. The band is comprised of Sgt. 1st Class Phillip Johnson and Sgt. 1st Class Ward Yager, trumpet; Master Sgt. Robert Cherry, horn; Master Sgt. Aaron Kadrmas, trombone; Master Sgt. Scott Cameron, tuba; and Sgt. Maj. William Elliott, percussion.

Since 1998, the Army Field Band Brass Quintet has showcased the finest and most challenging literature in brass quintet repertoire in colleges, universities and public and private schools across the United States. Recognized for its versatility as well as its technical skill, the performing group combines standard quintet works, band and orchestral transcriptions, commissions and original compositions to present one of the most diverse and entertaining chamber ensemble programs heard today.

For more information about the performance or the master class, contact Steve Call, BYU professor of music, at (801) 422-6116 or steve_call@byu.edu. To learn more about the United States Army Field Band Brass Quintet, visit www.facebook.com/armyfieldbandbrassquintet.

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.
