Lebanon United Methodist Church Located in the small, rural town of Neeses, South Carolina, is the quaint little building known as Lebanon United by the members of the church. Consisting mostly of elderly couples, much like my personal church, this church was not too farfetched for me to enjoy. A lot of families fill up the pews on Sunday mornings’; one of those families being my son’s girlfriends. At least I know that my future in-laws are church going! I can personally say that I had never been to any church service other than my own and when my son invited me to join him and the family for service one Sunday, I was of course hesitant.
When we entered the church, we were feather with palm leaves and the welcomed into the church with hand clappers. The people on stages look comfortable being up on stage and seemed to enjoy welcoming people on the service. To get people off their feet, the service started we started with the opening song “Up from the Grave He Arose.” As I was listening to the music, and was trying to sing along, I could hear the
Colonial Williamsburg shows what life was like for everyone back in colonial times. We can learn a lot from their structures such as the Capitol, the Magazine, and the Governor`s Palace. One of the most important buildings was the Bruton Parish Church. This historical church definitely deserves a commemorative coin because everyone then had to attend service once a month, it still offers service to this day, and it relates to the motto, “That the future may learn from the past.” The Bruton Parish Church had a major role during colonial times. At the time of the Revolution, this was the main church and all Virginians were expected to attend services at least once every month.
One place that I found to be interesting in regards to the acoustics in a public venue is my church back home in St. Louis, Missouri. Before Oak Bridge Community Church moved into their new building they were located in a movie theater. When it came to the sound quality of each service the sound wasn’t at its best per say, nor did it display the talent that was amongst our band. The acoustics in that theater weren’t up to par and made the “concert feel” displeasing. As our church continued to keep growing, God lead our church to a new space to call our home.
Since children of that era were traditionally baptised the day after birth in the Catholic Rhine country, and since Beethoven's family and his teacher, Johann Albrechtsberger, celebrated his birthday on 16 December, most scholars accept 16 December 1770 as his date of birth. Beethoven's first music teacher was his father. He later had other local teachers: the court organist Gilles Van Den Eeden, Tobias Friedrich Pfeiffer, and Franz Rovantini. Starting at age 5, his musical training was harsh and intensive, which often reduced him to tears. Many times he was dragged from his bed to the keyboard to do irregular late-night sessions.
There was a musical performance of one of the premiere American saxophone quartets, The Amethyst Quartet, on Monday, November 13th at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Concert Hall at San Jose State University. I was so excited because this is my first time that I attended a classical concert that only played by saxophones. There were four different types of saxophones being played, which included a soprano, an alto, a baritone and a bass saxophone. The program contained the Partita IV in D major, BWV 828, the Songs for the Coming Day, the Cerulean and the Andante et Scherzetto. The concert had three sections which were separated by short break.
During marching season we had many performance in state and one out in St. George. The big highlight of marching band was performing in the 2017 Tournament of Roses Parade and a band feast. I have never prepared for something that long and hard in my life. While people were out of town during winter break I was up in the mornings marching around our track playing Holiday road and Flight of Falcones. Even we spent so many time and sweat preparing for it I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Although some places of worship have altered it of late, Vacation Bible School (VBS) is usually a week-long camp for kids. Some churches host kids during the day, others only in the evening hours. However, typically, the event lasts around three to five days. VBS is super fun for kids because it combines learning about the Bible with songs, crafts, food and more. VBS is used as a community outreach tool by most churches to encourage additional memberships and serve the surrounding area.
He also had an exceptional hearing and memory that he notated almost an entire choral piece after hearing it once during his visit to Rome. He wrote many concertos (especially the piano concertos) and sonatas for his own virtuosic performance during the trip. Talent may helped in one’s musical journey but most importantly, it was Mozart’s passion in performing and music writing that won acclaim from the rich. Clara Wieck (1819-1896) is another example of a child prodigy born in a musically inclined family. Both parents played the piano and encouraged Clara to perform regularly at a very young age.
It may not seem significant to the audience, but to me, a mere 10 years old, it was a major breakthrough. I finally got the chance to spread the joy and love that I gained from this experience to the audience yet it was so nerve wrecking. As I took up my violin and touched the shrill E-string, I was immersed in the beauty of the music that awed me for years. The nervous thoughts just floated away and all that was in my mind was how to shape the music. The clear, sweet singing melody floated out from my three quarter-sized violin as my chubby fingers flew on the fingerboard.
Patrick Henry, a man who spoke with eloquence, addressed the second Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775, in St. John’s Church, Richmond Virginia. He truthfully said, “I speak the language of thousands.” His mother, Sarah Henry, a Winston, and his father, a Scottish immigrant, well-to-do planter, John Henry, had him on May 29, 1736. Patrick Henry was their second of nine children. He had a happy childhood: he played the fiddle and the flute, and he enjoyed being with his younger sisters. His formal schooling was pitiable: he did not go school.
