    736 Words  | 3 Pages

    On October 28, 2015 I went to the wind ensemble concert in the Hoag auditorium. It was a full house and the ensemble was fairly large. The set up was nice; the lighting and speakers were set in a way that would not interfere with the audience’s view of the band, and the stage fit the band perfectly. I don’t really have anything else positive to say about the concert; this concert was not as good as I was expecting and all I noticed were negatives about the performance. At first when they were on

The ensemble, a collaborative outcome from MSU Denver and other dance/cultural music groups from denver, was actually a mix of African and Indian/East

    In this virtuoso series concert, the style of music displayed was different pieces from 1756-1983.

The ensemble consisted of four songs: “Swing It,” a swing-style song; “Samba #1”; “A Child is Born,” a waltz; and “Bill’s Bay.” The main theme of “Bill’s Bay” was very catchy and

When looking at the stage all of the artists were in rows facing the crowd. They were in order based on their instruments which I saw violins, violas, cellos
