For Beginning Band, there were around 50 people. There were many different instruments and within each set of instruments, most of it was blended. However, there were some parts when it is just one group going and something seemed off. The mood was set and there were good dynamics. For the most part, everyone was ready for their part. I think the percussionists deserve a pat on the back for keeping a good beat. I really liked the start because it was a strong start and I was not ready for it. For Concert Band, there were around 30 people. The dynamics were definitely better than beginning. The mood was super intense for Little Red in the Hood. The dynamics really set the mood and the build-up really set the story. I knew when the wolf appeared. There was also a really strong ending for this song.

The Jazz Ensemble was amazing. I think I enjoyed this performance the most. I never thought that I would like Jazz becomes it doesn’t seem like something fun to listen. After their performance, my opinion changed. There were around 10 people in this group. Even though there were 4 trumpets, they did not overtake the sounds of the other instruments. Also, the solos really stood out. When some instruments were not playing, they did not just stand there and had a dead face. Instead, they grooved to the beats and looked like they were enjoying the performance and having fun.

I didn’t take notes for the remaining two because I wanted to sit back and enjoy the performance. The remaining two parts were also good. They had good dynamics and rhythm. None of the instruments stuck out in their group. This is the first band concert that I have ever been to since coming to Whitney. What I can take out from this is that in order to put on a truly satisfying performance for the audience and the performers, we have to enjoy it and not just have a dead face when it is not our…...

Music Paper

...4/22/12 Chamber Choir On Sunday, April 22, 2012, I attended the Chamber Choir concert. This concert took place in Eidson-Duckwall Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m. Coming into the concert, I did not know what a chamber choir was and I was not sure what they did. Therefore, I was not sure what to expect but I was sure that the concert would be a great performance. The chamber choir started off with “O quam gloriosum est regnum.” This piece was written by Tomas Luis De Victoria, whom lived from 1548-1611. After studying the history of music, I could tell that this music was from the time period because there were fluctuations in the sound, yet the sounds did not vary as much as they did later in history. I also noticed that this performance did not have any musical accompaniment, thus making it A Cappella. From then on, I realized that the chamber choir is an A Cappella group. After this song, the group sang another piece of work from De Victoria and slowly worked their way to more recent works. My favorite piece in this concert was Magnificat, written by Arvo Part. This song was magnificent and I enjoyed the crescendos and decrescendos that the singers were able to accomplish while using Latin. The singers exerted great emotion while singing this piece and I could definitely tell the passion exerted through seeing the faces of the singers during the performance. I believe all of the pieces of the concert were great; however, Magnificat stood above the rest in my...

Concert Report

...The Concert Environment: The National Lutheran choir’s performance is located in a church setting. There are statues and trees that give a very nice background. The choir, as well as the conductor, is dressed in black robes. The Mormon Tabernacle choir’s performance also seems to be in a church setting. The choir is dressed in white and the people playing instruments, as well as the conductor, are wearing black. The Marine Band’s performance is set in a high school gym. There are tables behind them to reflect the sound toward the audience. The whole band, including the conductor, is dressed in their marine uniforms. The Music, the composition I liked best: Personally, I enjoyed the National Lutheran choir’s playing of “Salvation is Created” the most. I liked this piece the best because I felt like it was done the best of the three. I felt very calm and relaxed while listening to this piece. It sets a very peaceful and relaxing mood. The texture is polyphonic. The meter is slow to medium. The Music, the composition I liked the least: Personally, I didn’t really enjoy the Marine Band’s performance. I felt like the atmosphere was not as good as the other two pieces. However, if it had been in a setting like the other two, it could have been just as good. I just felt like the other two pieces were more thought out and performed better than this. It did evoke a picture of soldiers in my head though. General reactions to the experience of attending the concert: The only......

Giovanni Gabrieli Sacrae Symphoniae

...Richard Gutierrez Music History II Giovanni Gabrieli’s Sacrae Symphoniae Giovanni Gabrieli was the organist and composer at St Mark’s cathedral in Venice. During his endeavor at the church, he experimented with the polychoral style, which had already been a feature of the works of earlier Venetian composers, Andrea Gabrieli, his uncle, being one of the composers. The cathedral was massive in size; the architecture of the building gave way for the stereo effect that Gabrieli experimented with. this was because of the huge balconies on both sides of the church. Gabrieli wrote a large number of pieces for cori spezzati, broken choirs, each having a call and effect type between the two choirs, and joining together during the climatic part. his most famous piece was written in 1597, gathering both choirs and instrumentalist to perform what we know as the Sacrae Symphoniae (sacred symphony), this which included the famous Sonata Pian’ e Forte. Pian’e Forte was the first piece in its time to specify the dynamics the composer wanted. The 1597 Sacrae Symphoniae is Gabrieli’s best work that represents his earlier works of music as the organist of the Saint Mark’s Cathedral in Venice, his job that he held from 1585 until his death in 1612. “Gabrieli’s years at the great Byzantine basilica coincided with the most brilliant period of its instrumental ensemble”. The ensemble being from the Doge’s palace at the time that had a very well established ensemble intact with more modern......

The Performance Was Put on by the Gospel Choir of Ncsu

...The performance was put on by the gospel choir of NCSU, and they were accompanied by a keyboardist, two guitarists, and a drummer. The lead guitarist was a good player, as well as the keyboard player (I hope to be there one day). Early on the audience section wasn't very full, but as things began to get started some late comers filtered in. The choir director encouraged the audience to participate in the performance rather than simply being spectators. I really enjoyed the performance having grown up going to churches that sing gospel music. It was also fun to see some of my fellow students displaying their talents, and to see the audience members stand and enjoy the show as well. The songs performed: "Shift this Place" by Youthful Praise "I Don't Know Why You Love Me" by The Citadel of Praise "The Good Shepherd" by Donald Lawrence "Do You Know Jesus" by Hezekiah Walker "He's Working It Out For Your Good" by Chicago Mass Choir "Jesus Is a Rock" by Glenn E. Burleigh (performed twice) "Be Healed" by Total Praise Choir "Wait On The Lord" by The Citadel of Praise The music expressed African traditions with its strong sense of complex rhythms. There was also the call and response present in the compositions and the dancing tradition. It seemed to me that the audience enjoyed what they were seeing. Most were already familiar with the particular style of music, but those who weren't joined in and appeared to have fun. The song I liked the most was......

A Brief Resource Appraisal of the Thee Choirs Winery. the Ways in Which the Systems of Production Can Be Made More Sustainable from an Environmental Point of View.

...A brief resource appraisal of the Thee Choirs Winery. The ways in which the systems of production can be made more sustainable from an environmental point of view. Introduction Three Choirs is one of the largest and the best established of England’s vineyards and is a major Gloucestershire tourist’s destination. (Williamson, 2008) Three Choirs cultivates a vide range of typically English grape varieties and in addition Pinot Noir. The company was established in 1973 with only a half an acre of vines, “simply as an experiment”,- Martin Fowke comments. This has expanded dramatically over the years. And now 30.3 ha of vines are being cultivated, all on the same single estate home vineyard. Tree Choirs also established cooperation by offering contract wine making for around 30 to 30 other small growers, both local and further afield. The Three Choirs single-estate is planted on well-drained sandstone soils, most of which enjoys a southerly aspect. The meso-climate of the vineyard is significant in both its warmth and low rainfall. As a result the approach is very much one of sustainable viticulture, however there is a range of techniques and opportunities that might help to make the winery even more sustainable. These tools will be presented in three parts (Vineyard, Winery and Infrastructure, which includes shop, hotel, restaurant) and discussed below, as well as the key points of the sustainability concept. “Sustainability is a...

Choir Trips

...Lynsey Chapman Comp 1 Instructor: Newell Essay 2 Choir trips to New York City and Orlando During my four years in high school I participated in choir. Because of insufficient funds our school isn’t able to send both our band and choir each year, so our choir had a chance to go on a trip every other year. My sophomore year we went to Orlando Florida, and my senior year we went to New York City. While both trips were fun, the Florida trip was more focused on the competition and the New York trip was more sightseeing. To raise money for the trips, we had to do many fundraisers. These fundraisers included That’s my Pan, where you can choose what kind of pan you want, the color of the lid and also the design and saying on the lid. There is also personalized utensils you can get and cutting boards. We also sold pizzas, candy, chocolate, and cookie dough. We also had a car wash to raise money. On the Florida trip it was nice to have more freedom to go where we wanted to go. During that week, we stayed at one of the hotels on Disney world grounds so we were able to get up when we wanted and take a bus to which resort we wanted to go explore. During the Florida trip, we spent most of our time at the resorts but we slept in when we could. When we went to each of the resorts, to be safe we had to be in a group of three or four people. If something happened at any of the resorts during the whole week, there were a couple chaperones assigned to be at each resort. When we were in......

Music in My Life

...of music. ­Little did I know that it would be life-changing. My story begins in 2001. My mother asked if I would be interested in singing. I hadn’t given it much thought. She suggested I join the Phoenix Boys Choir. She explained what it was and how successful it had always been. I decided to try out. When I arrived, I met the conductor in charge of the younger boys. She had me sing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.” A few moments later the conductor announced that I had passed my audition and would soon be a member of the training choir. I was so thrilled I couldn’t say a word. This would turn out to be one of the most memorable moments of my life. I was going to be a member of the internationally known Phoenix Boys Choir! I moved up through the levels of the choir quickly. Every boy longs to be in the most elite group – the Tour Choir. After two years, I made it. At 11 I had learned more about music than I could possibly have imagined. I learned music theory and how to read music. By the end of seventh grade I had been to Spain, Italy, and France. In Rome we performed at Saint Peter’s Basilica. It was a blessing to be able to sing in such a holy setting. We also sang in the Florence Cathedral. We traveled around the United States ­performing with other choirs. Often we sang for ­dignitaries. I think God blessed me with this talent because he wanted me to share my voice with others. I’ve heard it said that when you sing, you pray twice. I have learned hundreds of......
