A concert experience can vary based on the genre, venue and performers in different settings. Today, individuals have the access to purchase and stream songs or albums instantaneously. This advantage to a library of music is overshadowed and causes most music listeners to avoid going to a concert. Whether it be the location of the concert, traveling, paying fees and adding up to the costly expense of concerts that are not free, most of us are missing out on the entire experience. We would all benefit from the joys of watching a performance that is live, therefore each concertgoer can gain an enriching and impactful musical experience.
The concert I attended was titled the “Hope Is On The Way” Concert, performed by the Valley Community Church in Avon. The entire musical group/worship team performed on November 26th. The group performed five songs, ranging from 3 to 10 minutes long. The musical style is passionate and lively to convey the messages sung in order to praise God, religious themes are incorporated with the song, however, the instrumentals played are found in most popular songs. The instruments also convey emotion and ethereal and heavenly elements to encapsulate the mood of the sanctuary (people of the church) and embrace the audience in singing to praise God. The group is also known as the contemporary worship team that consisted of drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, vocals, piano/keys and a violinist. Joyful (The One Who

On Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 at 8:00 P.M., The Emerson String Quartet performed three pieces of classical music at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, California. The Emerson string Quartet is a professional string ensemble that performs classical music and consists of four adult males; Eugene Drucker on the violin, Philip Setzer on the violin, Lawrence Dutton on the viola, and Paul Walkins on the cello.
For this concert report I chose to go to a performance of student composers held at the Kimball Recital Hall. I chose this one because I wanted to see some of the talent that my peers have in the music realm, and also it was one of the only concerts I have been able to attend because I usually work at night. It was impressive to hear pieces composed by students. I cannot imagine creating something as complex as a musical composition, much less actually performing it, so this aspect of the concert was particularly awe-inspiring. There was a large attendance, and I think that much of the audience consisted of friends of the composers and/or performers. I went with three friends, who I convinced by telling it would be interesting to see
I chose the genre string quartet and attended a concert at First Presbyterian church on October 19th, 2014. Because of its location the sanctuary where the concert took place had many stained glass windows. It was marvelous and in my opinion well suited the feel of classical music. The audience was very responsive and attentive. They applauded when the musicians appeared, in between pieces, and at the very end. They were quick to join in the sing along portion of the concert. Overall the people attending were an older crowd but you could tell they truly appreciated the music. The concert’s duration was around an
On the night of February 11, 2017, Sarah and I traveled to the Music Hall at Fair Park to see Broadway’s hit “An American in Paris.” This was one of the most breathtaking shows I have ever experienced. From the talented dancing, magnificent acting, and wonderful singing it was a great way to spend my night! George and Ira Gershwin composed the music in this show the and the performers did a fabulous job making it entertaining. It was an amazing show to get to write about for my last Honors Paper, and I hope to see it again one day.
First of all, the first performance was witnessing the praise and worship team lead us into the presence of God. The team consist of nine people. There were three singers, a drummer boy, two cornet players, one trombone player, and two bass guitarist. The service was held in a separate building with about 850 people (young and adults). The atmosphere was very spirit filled and ready to worship. The songs ranged from fun and dance like to very slow, deep words and lifting hands up high. The part I liked most was when the youth would sing out the songs and get in the mood rather than just sit and watch the performance .it was very refreshing seeing the youth just have fun with the band and that they didn’t care how people would react to
The concert that I attended was a charity concert, which was organized in Boston at a local university there. The South Asian Student Union of Harvard University organized the concert. I happened to be in Boston and this particular concert was organized for benefit causes such as using the proceeds of the concert to fund a number of poverty alleviation projects in South Asia. The concert was organized in a rather big room, which had a very big podium, as well as at least 500 seats that had been placed in it. Therefore, the overall hall where this concert took place was a typical auditorium setting with seating and a stage at the front. The concert promoters talked about different cause benefits related to alleviation of poverty in South Asia and that’s why the concert was organized. The organizers also informed the audience that the musicians wore traditional clothing so that the audience members could also have a good insight and understanding of the South Asian culture. All of ticket revenues for this concert were then given to a number of charities which then would use those funds to assist the different poverty alleviation programs in the larger South Asian region.
The concert I attended was called the Faculty and Student Recital, which took place in the Cisco Auditorium on April 11, 2017. The music that was on the program was mostly what is called “classical” music, as well as a Chinese Folk Song, an electronic composition, and variations on an Indian Tala. In the classical pieces, the instruments that were used were the violin, the piano, the cello, and the oboe. In the electronic composition, the computer was used to make music. In the Chinese Folk Song, the piccolo was used to imitate the unique timbre of a Chinese flute. In the Indian tala, drums from Ghana were used to imitate the rhythm and sound of Indian drums. The piano, the violin, the cello, and the piccolo all originate

The first half of the concert was only instrumental. There were two violins, two violas, and two cellos. They sat on stage with the violins one my right, then the violas in the middle, and the cellos on the end. The violins played a few songs solo. The second half of the concert was only the choir and a piano. Their performance started with the song Daybreak. The song Daybreak also had a few girls playing percussion, one of them had a tambourine. Using SHMRG, the Harmony of most of the choirs songs were very homophonic. The Melody of most of the songs were mainly slow, though a couple songs were very fast, and upbeat.
Concerts contain so many sensations. The white chairs being put away, the stage getting placed back on the big black trailer piece by piece, and the quiet shuffles of the last feet leave the stadium; the stadium transforms into the purple and white stadium it once was, leaving no
On Thursday April 25, 2013 , I attended a jazz vocal concert at the Music Concert Hall. The first vocal ensemble opened up the performance with a slow rhythmic song called Blue Skies. It began with vocals and I noticed a light auxiliary percussion and drum rhythm. Also, the bass guitarist used walking bass and the piano and electric guitar joined in as well. The first song also consisted of two soloist Regina and Chantel who took the front stage to show off their chops. After the solo performances they fell back into the vocal sections and finished off the song as a complete band. The second performance had a piano opening which led to vocals joining in at the same time as the rhythm section. This performance
This semester I have experience many live musical performances. Some of these performances have let me down but for the most part, these performances have been everything I ever expected. My two favorite performances this semester were Festival Vallenato and Ultra Music Festival. Although these two types of music are different in every way possible, the people and the performers are exactly where I feel I am in the right place.
For my second concert report I thought that I would write about my only experience hearing songs of the Beatles live. The Rib America Festival was hosted by The Beatles Live Repertoire. The group dressed exactly like the Beatles, even had the same names, John, Paul, George, and Ringo. I had never heard any Beatles songs live before, so that was enough to get me off my butt. Not to mention, it was free entertainment, not a bad time at all.
This afternoon, I went to the music concert hall where is located in the music building for the listening hour, a small noon-time concert which is performed by the staff and students from the music majors. Since it is a free noon-time concert, most of the audiences just wear the t-shirts and jeans to the concert. Dresses are not required for the concert. The performance today is given by the Ananda Jazz Ensemble. They have played “Running Away”, composed by Bob Marley; “Madalena”, composed by Ivan Linz; “Conejitos y Ananda”, composed by Abi Romero; “La Bikina”, composed by Ruben Fuentes; and “Chukaro”, also composed by Abi Romero. Because this is a Latin Americdan Journey, all of the music performed is jazz music. All pieces played in the concert are an ensemble of piano, bass, and drums. During the concert, I was trying to be a perceptive listener; I enjoyed the music with concentration and paid attention to the music’s unity and variety, such as the dynamics and tempos. I also tried to associate the music with a picture when I listened to it and understand the emotion in the music.
