When he was fifteen, he gained a spot in the choir at St. Michael's School in Lüneburg. At the age of eighteen, in 1703 he started his professional musical career by playing the organ and violin in the Weimar and Arnstadt ruling courts ("J. S. Bach: Baroque Composer."). In 1707, he married his first wife and cousin, Maria Barbara (Sherrane, Robert.). Maria had seven children with Bach, four of whom survived. She died thirteen years after they were married of unknown causes ("J. S. Bach: Baroque Composer.").
I was relieved second semester when other kids transferred over into chorus, growing our chorus slightly. At the end of the year, we had learned that the chorus was trying to put a group together to go to Disney World at Christmas to sing in the Candle Light Processional at Epcot, so when it came time for school to start again in August, the room was full of new people. Once again we could divide our guy section into tenor and bass and divide the girls into Alto, Soprano II and Soprano I. After sending in an audition video, our chorus was selection to join the mass choir for two performances and to prepare, we learned 15 songs. My junior year, I transferred voice teachers because my old voice teacher was moving away.

He composed over 200 songs, a number of shorter orchestral works and several choral pieces (Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia). TRANSITION: We are going to look at how Ludwig Van Beethoven continues to impact the world today. Final Reflection How people play the piano today wouldn’t be the same without the influence of his music (Britannica School). People continue to listen to his music today (Britannica School). Nearly all later composers of concerti had to reckon with the innovations of Beethoven’s 4th and 5th concerti (Britannica School).
He should be studied in all music classes because of his complex and amazing operas, and his new way of composing music. Over 100 years after his death, Richard Wagner still influences today’s music because of his unique ideas concerning harmonies and operatic structures. Wagner did not have the musical childhood that most composers had. He was born in Leipzig, Germany, on May 22, 1813. We are not quite sure who his real father is; his mother remarried a year after he was born.
During the Philco Radio Time Show with Bing Crosby on the 12th November 1946, eight months after Liza was born, Judy Garland sang her own version of this piece. In this version the orchestra plays a lost verse with a swaying, dreamy, atmospheric introduction with the string section adding to the expectation of the lullaby to follow. Judy picks up the thread with a tempo rubato and seamlessly carries it forward. In the bridge of the song she had alternative lyrics referring to the Sandman instead of Parson Brown as she changed the context of the song into a lullaby for her daughter. The emotion in the performance shows that she is expressing love for her child and that Liza is the light in her life that makes her happy.
Chopin Frederic Chopin was born on 1st March 1810, not far from Warsaw, Poland to a Polish mother and a French father. When he was six months old, he and his family moved to Warsaw, where they lived in the grounds of the Saxon Palace, where Chopin’s father had gotten a job. Having previously been taught piano by his older sister, Chopin first started receiving professional music lessons in 1816 and it was immediately apparent that he had enormous talent. By the time he was eight years old, he had already given his first public concert. He attended the Warsaw Lyceum, where he took organ lessons; subsequently leaving school to attend the Warsaw Conservatoire of Music where he studied music theory, figured bass and composition.
The first plays I was ever in were musicals, and that’s how I found my love for singing. I was encouraged by all of the amazing staff members at Artsview to pursue acting and singing. Now I have made the Texas All-State Women’s Choir three out of four years in high school. My sophomore year of high
