Violist Yizhak Schotten at BYU Primrose Memorial Concert March 3

Israeli-born violist Yizhak Schotten will be the guest artist at Brigham Young University’s annual William Primrose Memorial Concert Saturday, March 3, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. Admission is free.

The program will be an “Evening of Transcriptions” featuring works by Bach, Liszt and Mendelssohn.

A feature article about Yizhak Schotten in STRAD Magazine called him "one of America's finest viola players, a leading light of the U.S. viola establishment."

Schotten studied with renowned violinist William Primrose at Indiana University and the University of Southern California. He also studied with Lillian Fuchs at the Manhattan School of Music.

He will be accompanied by his wife, Kathleen Collier. She tours and records extensively with her husband  and is on the faculty at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

The Primrose Memorial Concert is an annual event that honors legendary violist and former BYU faculty member William Primrose (1903–1982). The concert series features violists from around the globe, who, like Primrose, distinguish themselves on the instrument and promote its scholarship.

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.
