Lopez also included more use of the percussion and brass instruments such as the tuba, trombone, trumpet and horn making the suspense grow. The upper stringed instruments complimented the flute very nicely since they both have that soothing sound. This piece consisted of two different movements. The second part of it was a lot more allegro, upbeat, and energized. It symbolized the eternal love that no one, not even a powerful king, could take away.
On Wednesday, April 20th, I attended a formal concert at Webster Hall. It was Hunter College’s annual USG Spring Fling event. Last year featured a performance by Fetty Wap, a currently popular hip-hop artist. This year, Hunter students had the pleasure of watching Oxymorons, the opening acts, and Waka Flaka Flame perform. Waka Flaka Flame is a hip-hop artist active in the hip-hop scene since 2008.
I loved the feeling when the orchestra played really intense pieces. No on made a sound. The symphony hall was silenced. The percussion and the cellos was my absolute favorite. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center hosted the free concert day to show people how amazing art is, they definitely
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.
I mastered scales, practiced arpeggio 's until my fingers bled, and meticulously studied great composers. My dedication led to many honors and the admiration of my peers. I was proud of myself and felt confident in my abilities. These sentiments translated into social skills. By the end of my second year in music, I became very outgoing.
This was my favorite song of the year. I enjoyed this song so much that I took the extra time to memorize it and make it easier for me to watch our formations and make sure we look right in the drill as we played throughout the song. We started out in a box shaped formation and throughout the song, we would change to different shapes and move at different speeds while the
Brian McCormick (one of the gang) came over during lunch and asked if they could host the party at my place. He stated that there was a last minute change in the plan and they needed a place to host the event. He then, added, “Your dad has a good stash of booze?” That was a turning point moment; a life changer, in fact. I pondered over all the possibilities; the girls I would meet; the social standing that the company of these kids would bring in school or even the neighbourhood. However, I couldn’t bring myself to abuse the trust my parents had placed in me.
On Tuesday, May 10, I had the opportunity along with my husband to listen to a jazz band at the Grand Theater bar in downtown Grand Have. I must admit I have never been a jazz fan, but this group did grab my attention. We had a nice dinner while relaxing and listening to the band. The band started out as a trio – drums, bass, and guitar. Halfway through their second set another guitarist joined in.
Not only was this song enjoyable, because it has a very nice beat and rhythm, but I specifically remember this song from a performance I did with the rest of the All City Chorus members in the fifth grade. Of course, back then, I did not think much of the song’s form and such, but overall it was a very fun experience and a great childhood memory. I remember we practiced this song numerous times, as well as other songs that we would then perform in the same concert, and the music instructor was very articulate on this song because we were doing something very special for it. Generally, all of the song selections the music instructor chose was all in English, including popular holiday songs, Oye Como Va was the only exception. Just as in any concert, performers would invite their families to attend and enjoy our hard work.
Many of our cultural aspects were potrayed, especially that of the Baptist community which was in the forefront of everything. Their dances and songs and rituals were showcased. Coming down to the end of the show was just as lively as the beginning if not more. The singing and dancing all made the experience more memorable. When everything was completed and the cast was introduced, I found it so fascinating that they all looked so "normal “as compared to the way they were made to look during the
