In this scene, the narrator is invited to watch Sonny’s musical performance at a nightclub, and eventually learns that redemption can be done through music as Sonny’s piano performance has a healing effect on his soul. He finally acknowledges and appreciates the beauty of Sonny’s music which he used to look down upon: “It was very beautiful because it wasn’t hurried and it was no longer a lament. I seemed to hear with what burning he had made it his, with what burning we had yet to make it ours, how we could cease lamenting. Freedom lurked around us and I understood, at last, that he could help us to be free if we would listen that he would never be free until we did.”

Not only are the interactions between the characters identical, the notes of Beethoven’s sonata also reflect the notes in Mozart’s. The two pieces begin with a forte C minor chord, establishing the bold and powerful tone of the first character. The notes of the first two measures are meant to jump from one to the next with a strong, downward motion on the piano keys. This kind of motion creates the anger that can be heard in the music. Continuing on, the phrase builds up to an E flat, followed by filler rests that set the stage for the second character to enter.

"In daylights, in sunsets In midnights, in cups of coffee In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes How do you measure a year in the life" -Seasons of Love, Rent One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite musicals.

The song answers this by saying that the answer is love. However, I disagree.
Sophie Shao and Milana Strezeva displayed this well in their performance. Sophie Shao’s cello performance and Milana Strezeva’s piano performance was definitely beautiful and enjoyable to my ears. I have attended multiple orchestral concerts and piano recitals, but Sophie Shao definitely had the most emotion and enthusiasm in her playing. I could tell by the way she spoke of each of the pieces and how she described the composers that she was very knowledgeable in the field of music and how much passion she had towards both music and the cello. I enjoyed the performance to the fullest extent and I hope to see hear her play again
By watching Fordham’s adaptational production of Magnolia, a play by Regina Taylor, before reading it, helped me understand the play in a comprehensive way. The elements provided by the designing, lighting, set, props, cues and emotional intensity the actors portrayed shed an all-embracing experience to the script. The outcome of the production did the play justice. Yet, the plotline was somehow arduous to follow in terms of the plot details and in identifying each the characters though the actors portrayed their characters quite individualistically. At the beginning,, the characters were singing all together, blacks and whites, to the tunes of “The Times They Are A-Changin” by Bob Dylan, setting the tone that times were changing, particularly

Although Webb had already hired another singer for his band (Charlie Linton), he too was impressed by Ella’s talent. Because of this, and despite her “gawky and unkempt” appearance, he gave her the opportunity to sing with his band at a dance at Yale University as a test run.

Lastly they pored ping pong balls on the piano string.
