About two hours later, the Skeleton Clique (people of the Twenty One Pilots unofficial fanbase) dispersed as the concert came to a close, awestruck by what we had all witnessed. Between all the jumping and belting lyrics, I was completely exhausted, though still jittery from the adrenaline. I was left with the feeling of craving for more live performances by Twenty One Pilots, and hoped that I could go to more concerts in the future. After this summer experience, I have realized that music is something that every person should treasure, no matter their personality. Music is significant in many parts of one’s life, from birth to death.
Maestro Johnson allowed the weight of the orchestra to rest on his shoulders as he carried us to greater heights, making leaps and bounds to the peak of success. His determination for honing our abilities as musicians was reflected by the extensive hours he spent at school, staying after school to provided extra support for his students with one on one interactions. On Saturdays, he hosted practices that stretched from morning to well into the afternoon. He took us to see other professional musicians in the hope of inspiring us to continue practicing. Slowly over time, our misfit orchestra began to see the beauty of music.
My school's chorus combines with the choir of a nearby school and sings a multi-movement work accompanied by a professional orchestra. This mass of extremely diverse people is dubbed the "Super Chorus." Usually, the two schools do not get along very well, seeing as we are sports rivals, but on this day, everyone is brought together purely for their love of music. No matter how different we are from each other, we all must face the same grueling rehearsal. The Super Chorus practices throughout the school day and into the night to perfect the piece.
On the night of Sunday December the 6th at 7:30, the magic of Christmas music became a reality to the hundreds upon hundreds of people who flocked to The Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, anticipating this year’s rendition of the long standing tradition that is the Boise State University Music Department Christmas Concert. It all began with a few peppy, but fun pieces such as Deck the Halls from the Jazz Band ensemble. While that was fun, let’s face it… That is not why people came out to the concert. People came out to this concert to listen to the choir and orchestra perform such legendary pieces as Handel’s Messiah, or a holiday carol mashup called Feast of Carols by Randol Alan Bass. When the chorus first entered during the fourth movement of Handel’s Messiah, I was quite honestly struck by the
The amount of noise that the 22,000 people in attendance that night was fantastic. With the players celebrating and hearing the support from the fans, would have given them energy that they would struggle to find on an average night. The players were celebrating on the field and the fans celebrating with them, but in the stands. We stayed to watch all of the celebrating festivities from our stadium top perch for a half an hour before we headed back on the long journey to the
On Wednesday, the 18th of May, I attended and participated in the Final Band Concert of the year. Throughout the year, all band students continually practice pieces and the Final Band Concert is the only concert to have every band student in it from fifth grade all the way up to twelfth. This concert is always very special because it is both the first large concert for the fifth graders and the last for many students. The concert started from the Fifth Grade Band, then to the Junior 6th Grade, Advanced 7th and 8th Grade band, and finally to the High School Concert Band. The concert began exactly on time at 19:00.
Most high school students are subject to an everyday routine consisting of having classes all day, having to talk to teachers and go to extracurricular activities just to go home to study and sleep. If you have ever watched high school musical growing up you may have thought about what high school was really going to be like when you get there. Kids wonder if it will be similar to the movie or if it will be completely different than they thought. High school and high school musical have their similarities originating from everyday life when in reality they differ in the reality of students, teachers, classes, sports and musicals. High school students are everyday typical teenagers, their attention is stuck on their phone, and friends for the most part.
Recently I had a big personal achievement that I 'm truely proud of. I attend the music school and I play the violin. Before one week I had an important concert for Oginski 's honor, but I was realy afraid of it because I had a big scene fear. I repeated, played and tried to improve my playing for Oginski 's polonaise. When the day of concert came, I was realy nerous.
Without a doubt attending North Carolina Governor 's School West has had the greatest impact on my thinking. I was privileged to join a few hundred of the brightest minds of my age in Winston-Salem, North Carolina for a six week experience away from outside influence. This immersion was especially life altering because of how open-minded everyone was to new perspectives. This truly created an environment of learning and expression in addition to being a major liberation from my everyday life as I had to be truly independent while on Salem College’s campus. I attended as a choral ensemble student, but was able to experience so much more in addition to choir.
I have been in band for 8 years. Words cannot describe how much I have enjoyed the past 8 years. When I chose to join band in 5th grade, I did not know how many friendships I would make from one simple choice. As I got better at playing the flute, the friendships grew stronger. In high school, I was in marching band, so that means more time spent involving band.

and and Colorguard have been practicing constantly, and achieved many awards during the last few parades. The members of Colorguard and Band have been working their tails off every day to ensure more achievements in the future. Band members have been practicing everyday to get everything right. They start practice at 7:40 a.m, and play through the first period of the day with another period for Concert Band and after-school practices until 9 p.m. To get prepared for competitions, they all must arrive on time and do the visual and music parts of their warm-ups. After all the warm-ups, the drum major dismisses each section to go onto the field to perform.
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
He left his favorite place of work to do on stage loving what he used to do alone in his bedroom…...sing and dance. Just being the start of his Broadway career he took New York in his stride: performing 8 shows a week, appearances, side-performances. Brayden loved the lime-light. Along with his newfound fame, Brayden also settled down in the free time he had to marry his partner of 6 years, John Doe. Together raising twin siblings adopted from Syria, Sayid and Jodee.
Throughout high school I have been very involved in my choir program. Music has always inspired and intrigued me. I decided to audition for Colorado All-state choir my junior year. I had to learn a solo and practice many other aspects of being a well-rounded vocalist. When I auditioned I was very nervous but it was nothing compared to the pain I felt of not making it two months later.
