“Music is the universal language of mankind.” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The ‘Witch and the Saint’ was originally composed for orchestra by Steven Reineke. It was later on arranged for concert bands by the American arranger Matt Conaway. I chose the ‘Witch and the Saint’ because it assembles many interesting and different factors that the music we hear nowadays doesn't have. For example at the very beginning there is a very special element that we don’t usually hear which is the church bells.
I thought I would need to keep practicing , but again if I tried again, and I got it! I had finally gotten a piece right. I did it again and, I had played it right five times in a row without a single mistake. Every time I have looked at my trumpet I remember that moment. I am often playing it because it still is able to make magical music.
The French horn is a ‘brass instrument made of tubing wrapped into a coil with a flared bell”. This was very interesting to me because I love music and I never thought about the French horn. I was very amazed on how Jolley was really dedicated to playing his French horn. As
The impact that Louis Armstrong had on jazz music and the Jazz Age was so immaculate that it transformed the genre of this new music for many generations to come. Through his multitudes of different performances during the twenties, he developed new ways and techniques to enhance his playing. Performances were never lacking for Louis he showcased solos, as well as in bands, which expanded his popularity throughout the country. Beginning his career and influence in the twenties, he started off with his solo performances, exhibiting his incredible trumpet and cornet playing as well as adding some singing in with the mix. These bountiful performances allowed him to become invited by his mentor “King” Oliver to be a part of his Creole Jazz Band.
It was louder and fast pace again. Some of the parts sounded really familiar, especially when the trumpet took over and played louder than the rest of the instruments. I once again did not catch the name of the piece being played. When the five men were over with their songs, the UMD jazz band came out. There was a lot more instruments for the next songs that were to be played.
Not old are they appropriate, these movies give young children but they’re not violent or sexual. This is why Walt Disney made so much money from parents because they know behind their back that their children. In Cinderella, Disney took out two stepsisters cutting their heel and toe off and the pigeons pecking their eyes. Also, Cinderella has a magical bird that gives her what she needs, bit a fairy god mother. It's crazy to see how much a story can change so much and every parent will show their
That’s why it’s important. I can really be myself around almost everyone in my choir because we all hang out so much and get to know things about each other we probably don’t really need to know. We are all just there to do what we love and have a good time doing it, which I love. In conclusion, show choir may be a lot different from what people think and I hope that everyone can see why “Glee” is not a great representation of it. My experiences have showed me that people have the wrong idea about show choir just because no one has actually ever told them.
All the songs on this album have vocals, and all the songs are generally slow with Armstrong playing the trumpet and singing, and he is accompanied by several backup singers and an eight person band. This music is intended for listening, but with all of the songs having good melody and harmony, it could be danced to. The songs on this album are softer and have a pleasant sound and texture. The music is very comforting and the instrumental seems practiced and refined. The recording quality is good, the words and instrumentals are good and understandable.
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.
It was interesting to see the transitional period from start to finish. I have been present in Wind Symphony for this to happen and have noticed great achievements, but it was interesting to see it as a bystander and a whole picture. Again, it was great to see these rehearsal techniques from a bystander point of view. It is interesting to sit and think through the choices the director is making rather than think a little than play, like an ensemble setting I am use
On November 10 I attended Elf the Broadway Musical written by David Berrenbaum and directed by Sam Scalamoni. I attended Elf the Broadway Musical which was put on by Texas A&M University and MSC OPAS. Elf the Broadway Musical was a comedic musical that appealed to audience members of any ages including a range from myself a college student to the family of four sitting next to me. Elf the Broadway Musical was a delight surprise, since I had seen Elf (film) I expected the play to appeal more to a younger audience, but was surprised when I found myself laughing alongside the two children sitting next to me. I honestly did not have very high expectation from this play for some reason I was just not very excited to attend this play maybe it was
So my seven class mates and I learned it, then performed several pieces at the time, and moved on to what we called the cool instruments. My friend Jacob and I were the only fourth graders who were taking the snare at the time and we both loved it, we took solo and ensemble together and both got first on our solos. Sadly, I moved school and couldn’t join my band, but I then found
Due to their increased experience, these bands played more challenging music than the previous group. My favorite piece of the entire concert—MacArthur Park—was played by Brazoswood High School’s PM Jazz Band. Featuring a heavy trumpet lead played by Wayne Bergeron, MacArthur Park was in tune from beginning to end—despite being played almost exclusively in the upper register. The high notes played by Bergeron and the trumpet section were extremely well tuned and devoid of any of the screeches that frequently occur as a side effect of high notes. Although my favorite piece was MacArthur Park, I thought the most striking moment of the entire concert was when the lead trumpet from Brazoswood High School’s AM Jazz Band moved to the front of the stage and played alongside Bergeron during Bright Moments—matching him almost pitch for pitch.
In general, people believe that talent for sports or music is inherited, and no effort is needed to be extraordinary. Throughout history, in fact, there were several examples of people who could perform outstandingly in these areas, such as Mozart, the music composer. However, it is agreed that the more people practice, the superior results they will achieve. Analyzing the examples of Michael Jordan and Oscar, who became famous basketball players, it is possible to verify that people can learn how to become an excellent, and not only good, sportsmen. On the one hand, it is a fact that a few people has inherent special talents, and people tend to focus on these examples, because they are extraordinary.
With some aspects being more present than others yet not knowing that there are other parts of my cultural inheritance that have influenced me more than I may think. Complex parts for each voice that make up a seemingly simple melody. As a violinist, I have deep sentimental feelings about my instrument and what it has done for me over the years. Playing a concerto you are the soloist and the symphony is accompanying you. It does everything it can to help the soloist sound good yet the soloist also needs to stay with the symphony and help cue the other instruments.
