Concert Review No. 2
Students will attend two (2) concerts throughout the term. Students will submit a paper with no less than 300 words, doubled-spaced. A program from the performance must be submitted as well (only if you attend a live performance). You may scan the program, send an email with a picture attached or send through regular mail.
Within the body of the paper, students need to include the following: Where was the concert? What genre was it? Who were the performers? What did you notice about the performers? Do you know their backgrounds? What type of music was performed? Do some research on the composer(s)? Be sure to cite (in text citation and reference page) your sources (MLA or APA) Did the performers seem well prepared? Did you like the music they played? What did you like or dislike about the performance or the music? What was the audience like? Describe the musical elements of each piece (Melody, Harmony, Texture, Dynamics, Tempos, etc.)
Concerts must be classical (e.g. opera, symphony, high school/college or university band, orchestra or chorus concert) Popular concerts will not be accepted. Concerts must be preapproved by the instructor.
Below are links to Youtube videos – You may pick and choose the videos you want to be included in your concert review. Make sure that videos you choose add up to at least an hour in length. The focus of the review should be on the musical characteristics (Melody, Harmony, Texture, Dynamics, Tempo, Style and Form)
