My favorite of the three pieces performed was Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town. These jazz pieces mixed up the concert a little bit, providing a counter-balance to the some of the beautiful, heavy, awe inspiring pieces, by adding some spice to the concert. While this was fun, my favorite piece performed during this concert was the final piece, Feast of Carols by Randol Alan Bass. This piece is a mashup of many well known Christmas carols. The singers sang this piece with many of the same tone quality as in Messiah, but the overall balance was better.

I am much obliged to you.

Nicole had signed it and added Christmas 1972 beneath her 1971 signature, and she had added her own Christmas message. “What can I give you, poor as I am? I’ll share Jesus with you, the Savior, the Lamb.” As crazy as it might sound, Abby was pretty thrilled to get the Christmas card back. She dug around in storage until she found the old picture frame and ensconced the card like a photo on her fireplace mantle again. It often brought a smile to her lips, and precious thoughts of her sister to her heart as she would admire it in passing.
The songs in Rodgers and Hammerstein's musicals are memorable. I believe that is why they are still popular today. My family is musically inclined and my sisters and aunt always sing songs from "Cinderella", "The King & I" and "Oklahoma." I found myself singing along with the actress during "Never Walk Alone." I couldn't believe I knew the words.
1. After viewing the documentary and listening to each song by Rodgers and Hammerstein the song that made the most impact on me was the song “Some Enchanted Evening.” The song consists of very smooth and romantic melodies. Due to that I am a hopeless romantic I really enjoy the song lyrics and melody. The song was very catchy that I ended up singing the song for the rest of my day. One of my favorite lyrics of the song was.
Every time a character would break out in song dance, it always correlated with the feelings they had. The famous scene of Lockwood singing in the rain portrayed the actual happiness that the character was feeling in that moment. As an audience member, the scene did not feel strange because the average individual knows what it’s like to be so happy, you feel like singing and dancing. The MGM musicals produced by Arthur Freed specifically combined surrealistically imaginative musical numbers, enjoyable scores, a pleasing use of color, and funny, spoofing plots that often still related to the
Holidays celebrate an area’s culture and/or the day(s) it commemorates with various festivities and traditions. In Theodore Geisel’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas, the light-hearted denizens of Who-Ville are preparing to celebrate Christmas. For the Whos, it is a time of fun and merryness, in which they sing and play with one another. This is a time of camaraderie and fellowship between everyone in the town. Apart from this is the antagonist, the Grinch, who dreads the holiday along with the singing, feasting, and other festive activities that the holiday inspires.
He was very effective in explaining how people's lives were less put together in the victorian era, and how their living conditions were so different than today. People appreciate Dickens work today because A Christmas Carol is a very fun, and exciting story to read, especially around Christmas time, to show people to be grateful for what they have, and keep in mind what they have, and how similar Christmas has been since the Victorian era. Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is a fun, yet intense story of the past, present, and future of a rich, bitter old man, and how he must see what he has done wrong, and what he must fix. With the visions of his life, he sees how he has been,
Karla Almengo Christmas is to feel like family and I am someone extremely homelike. Since I was little, I liked this time of the year even though I am not a person who lets myself be carried away by fixed dates and organized by a calendar. However, the spirit of Christmas, the thought that time returned to zero by a being who came to world to teach us to love one another. I like Christmas decorations, and I like the air that acquires the cities during this time of the year, I like snow and cold. For instance, one of my favorite things that I love to do is decorate the Christmas tree.
I had the opportunity this week to watch the concert “Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.” The performance was on November 17, 2015. This concert was preformed very well. Parts of the concert were very calm and sincere, while others were upbeat and fun. While at the concert three musical numbers stuck out to me. The first was “How far is it to Bethlehem?” The second was “Carol of the Bells.” The third and final one was “Joy to the World.” The first musical piece that I really liked was called “How far is it to Bethlehem?” This certain number stood out because, I liked the calm, gentle texture of the song.
Gabriel’s Oboe was played at a Moderato Tempo and reveals the hidden sound most audiences do not hear due to the low and sweet sound that comes out of the instrument. Jingle Bells was played at an Allegro tempo and articulated the sweet sound that comes from the whole band creating a swing beat to match a nostalgic preference of Christmas being so close. The Flute Trio expressed their excellence in soothing music from their selection Silent Night played at an Andante tempo. Their other song Carol of the Bells played at a Moderato tempo and was quite lively with each player playing different tunes all at the same time. The song selections were perfect for the theme and they had a familiar
The second group to perform was Iowa State Singers. I could tell this was the most polished group. Not only did they sing octappella for a majority of their songs but also the mix of men and women did not go unnoticed. You could tell just by the way the constantly posed themselves, they were either music majors or life long enthusiasts of the arts. I personally connected with the song “Ave Maria”, because it was song at my grandfathers funeral last Christmas.
