Concert Attendance Report For this project you need to plan ahead. You will need to attend a symphony orchestra concert, opera, or musical in order to complete it. As long as it is a symphony orchestra concert, opera, or a musical, any event is OK. In any case, you must find a way to be able to see the orchestra at some point in the performance (they are usually in the "pit" - yes, that's what it's called).
Your Assignment You are to write the equivalent of a 2-3 page report giving a review of the concert you attended. A minimum of a 400 word essay. Your review must include the following:
What kind of listener were you at the concert? Why? What pieces were performed? What was the style of each of the pieces performed? What was the instrumentation of the orchestra? Analyze each piece played in the concert with following criteria from the course:
Unity and Variety Structure of the Music Purpose of the Music Tempo Volume Rhythm Melody Harmony Form Historical Period Did you enjoy the concert? Why or why not?
