He published Night twenty three years later, terrified to relive the moments in his writing. But he knew somebody needed to stand up for the deceased. Somebody needed to be their voice. The distress was all around and needed to be told. The Holocaust is the worst event in history that dehumanized human beings, causing millions of deaths that can never happen again. We need to be their voice to express the truth

The first thing is the implementing of vibrato. Until the early twentieth century, violinists make the conclusion that vibrato was not used as a connection and constant undercurrent in violin playing , but as a tool to highlight unique moments melodically or harmonically. However, Eugène Ysaÿe, the Belgian violinist changed their mind, he encouraged people to use continuous vibrato to make their sound more passionate and expressive, and Strauss 's sonata was also affected by this trend. Also in that time, portamento was widely used at every position change. Thus in order to play the sentimental emotion of this sonata well, violinists need to study how to use plenty of vibratos and expressive
After seven years of playing the violin, I can proudly say that music has become a part of me.Throughout my experience with playing the violin, there has been one individual who has helped shape the person I am.

Topic 1: Enrolling at Central Catholic High School was a significant risk that has made me a more confident person. I came from a public K-8 where I knew every student since kindergarten. My friends were all going to Grant High School, but that was not the path I wanted to take. I knew that I wanted the academic challenge Central Catholic could give me as a college preparatory high school. By enrolling at Central Catholic, I risked isolation because I would enter high school without knowing anyone. I was very afraid on my first day that I would make no friends because everyone seemed already have cliques. However, in my first class I ended up meeting my best friend. By risking isolation I became more confident in my decisions, and met my best friends, I could not have found any of this by following the crowd.

Thesis Statement: Today I am going to tell you about an aspect of human culture that appears just about everywhere you go: music.
Andres Segovia was a prolific twentieth century classical guitarist who had a profound influence on the classical guitar. Segovia emerged from a musical family in Linares, Spain and from a young age had lessons in an array of traditional classical instruments. But he did not discover his passion for music and the guitar until attending a private concert of a flamenco guitarist after which he received his first lesson. Following this, Segovia began studying the instrument, working diligently, ignoring the wishes of his family “to study an acknowledged and respected classical instrument” (Gorman, 2008). Soon after this Segovia began to realise the guitar’s shortcomings in the realm of classical music. Hence, he outlined his ambitions “To extract the guitar from the noisy and disreputable folkloric amusements” and make it known all over the world … “To create a wonderful repertoire for my instrument” … “[and] to place the guitar in the most important conservatories of the world … Thus securing its future” (Gorman, 2008). The influence Segovia had on the guitar can be best recognised within four specific areas of repertoire, technique, publications and the media.
