...Sheng Lu Assignment: Concert review from Faculty Artist Series Presents (on date 9/8/15) Instructor: Professor Mark Gibson September 22, 2015 That night, I went to Robert J. Werner Recital Hall listened the concert performed by Musician Steve Allee and professor of percussion Rusty Burge. The music they played is relate to Jazz, although I don’t know much about the music, I can feel the player they love music and devote their lives in it. For what I can do I think just enjoy and appreciate them bring their music to us. Also, I was impressed by these two instruments piano and vibraphone they are wonderfully connected to each other, and there is one moment I think piano and vibraphone they are designed for each other. It reminds me my teenage year in middle school, I play trumpet in school orchestra so I can understood them how much they like what they performed it becomes their friend already. But one thing I am curious about is that I was first time saw the vibraphone and I don’t know it can make the sound so special, it feels like I am in another world with that sound only. Such powerful and pure. At the same time, I realized that if I want to learn well on these two instrument how difficult it is, I have to memorize every beat and practice as many times as I can in order to prevent making mistakes. Especially, vibraphone every sing mistake will ruin the whole song due to its specialty. I like the part they played “Waltz for Tomorrow”, the tune of the song is......

Concert Report 3

...Feelings about the concert We have just finished attending our third concert in Fenway Center last Thursday. It’s an amazing concert, and all of us should give a performance in this concert. Since I came to America, I have attended three concerts, and I feel that this is the best concert I have attended. Comparing with those two concerts I have attended before, I have more feelings about this concert; and I want to share my feelings with you. In this concert, each of us gave our performances as a unit of class, and our class was the first performer in this concert. We gave four shows: two chorus and two team-sings. The names of our songs were: “We Are the World”, “We are Young”, “Mama Tried”, and “21 Guns”. “We are the World” and “21 Guns” were song by our whole class, “We are Young” and “Mama Tried” were song by Nigerians. In this concert, we used many things that we learned in the class, such as for the song, “We are the World”, we used “call and response” at the end of the song. Actually, when we were practicing these songs, the effect wasn’t very good; we even couldn’t decide what songs to perform. However, when we sang in the concert, the effect was excellent, everyone sang well, and the react of the audiences was good, too. Before I sang, I felt nervous and I was afraid of forgetting the lyrics, however, when I saw the react of the audience, I felt very happy and relaxed. The first performance went on well; other performances were also very amazing. There were many......

Landon's First Birthday

...Assignment 3: Cultural Event Report Blaine Medvec Ray Otto World Cultures I September 7th, 2012 The event I was at was a music concert located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania called Sublime with Rome. My cousin wanted to go see one of his favorite bands called Cypress Hill. Also other bands known as Sublime and Pepper were to be attending the event. The location where it was exactly located is known as Stage AE or Stage American Eagle. Now I have been to many different concerts before but they were usually local bands in an indoor place with about 100-300 people. This one in particular was outdoor and over 5000 people. I went with my cousin, his friend and his girlfriend. Everybody except for me lived in Pittsburgh so they were more aware of what was to be expected than I was. I live about an hour away from Pittsburgh so it took us awhile to meet up with everyone as he came to pick me up. When we finally arrived in Pittsburgh, we were getting a hotel that night so we went there first. Once we checked in we waited for our friends to arrive. After about an hour of waiting, our friends Tom and Caitlin showed up. We then made our way over to the concert. When I arrived at the event I thought it would be a lot of fun. The people gathered around the stage were excited and anticipating the show. I proceeded to get some food and drink before as I knew I would probably be getting no time to leave as it would only get more and more crowded. Once we got our spot in the crowd, we......

Walt Disney Concert Hall

...Sculpture Critical Analysis The sculpture I picked is a full-round sculpture, and you can see something different from each side. I think the method of execution is construction because it doesn’t look like he modeled this with clay by manipulation. I also highly doubt he used all subtraction for this because that would be inefficient, although he might have done some small amounts for some of the finer detail. That leaves substitution, which is unlikely because that would be a gigantic mold to make and also inefficient. In my opinion, this is a very open piece. I see some contraposto in a couple of the people because of the way they look like they’re in movement carrying this woman. What initially catches my eye about this piece is the woman being carried holding the torch. Then I look down and see all the people carrying her with all those defined features pointing up, and I get carried right back up to the woman on top. I would say my eye travels in almost an oval shape fashion. As far as size is concerned it’s a very tall sculpture, standing around 20 feet tall I would estimate. It also looks like a very heavy sculpture but it doesn’t cover a lot of ground. It’s fairly skinny but tall. I would say this sculpture has a very defined texture. There are discreet details in the that you can see when you focus. For example, the wrinkles in the clothing and the facial details. There’s a lot of negative space in this sculpture mainly because the individual people aren’t......

Since the fourth grade I was a prestigious student in concert choir, taking part in many events throughout grade school. Last Thursday, I was honored to partake in the University of West Georgia’s first official talent show hosted by the Eccentrix organization. Eccentrix is a student-based organization that host’s events such as open mic and free verse nights dedicated to the students at West Georgia. The mission is to promote an environment that is open to any race, religion, or culture where the students are able to perform a variety of talents varying from singing, dancing, playing an instrument, or even a poem of choice. When I heard about the talent show, I didn’t hesitate to say yes and audition. The night of the show I was anxious and couldn’t have been more ready to perform. The opening of the show was a wonderful experience as I sat and watched my peers perform their talents. I watched in amazement and couldn’t wait to go on stage myself. I was the second to last act, and I performed an official piece written by me. The song is called “Change your ways,” which is dedicated to an ex-boyfriend of mine. It was the first time I had ever performed apiece written by me so it was a new experience. When it was my time, I sat on stage, picked up the mic, and gave the best performance of my life.

The cars are leisurely rolling for the next few blocks waiting to reach the same destination. Anxiety rushes over her as the starting time for the event approaches. Emma and her friends decide to find a place to park the mustang and get out and walk. As they walk vigorously past all the slow moving cars, they feel the heat from the sun kissing their backs. The stench of cigarette smoke fills the air. The sound of multiple car horns are beeping. They have one more small hill to climb before they arrive at the concert. After being searched, Emma and her friends make it through the security gates and hand their tickets to the usher. Emma hears country music playing and she can see people drinking beer and fooling around. They make their way to the sitting area and spread their pink and white poka dot designed blanket out on the cold, wet grass. Emma and her friends decide to visit the concession stand to get some buttery popcorn and an ice cold, bubbly Dr. Pepper that smells like cherry carbonation. As Emma waits for the opening act to come on stage, she and her friends stretch out on the blanket and let the cool breeze flow through their hair. They start singing along with the songs beating from the speakers. They get the urge to dance as they start with just the tapping of their cowboy boots on the grass; it then turns......

Raul Sunico

...Reaction Paper: Raul Sunico Premiere Concert On 22 February, 2015, Dr. Raul Sunico performed a premier concert at the Old Senate Hall at the National Museum of the Philippines. He opened the show with a Polonaise form the opera, “Eugene Onegin” followed by the first-time performance of three concertos by Tchaikovsky. It was a sure privilege of mine to have attended a concert that showcased an actual breakthrough in music history done by our very own dean Dr. Raul Sunico. It did not occur to me that it was the first time all three Tchaikovsky concertos were performed in one concert until I read the program. However, prior to reading the program, I noticed a number of photographers that were present to cover the event and I immediately thought to myself that something special is happening. Knowing that the dean of the Conservatory himself was having a concert was my initial motivation to attend the concert because I was curious as to how good and credible he really was to be our dean. Not that I ever doubted him, but I thought it would be a great opportunity to watch a good example of musicality set by the dean of the conservatory himself. Another incentive of mine in deciding to attend the concert was the fact that it would be my first time going to the National Museum and my first time to hear the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra. It was fitting to have a concert in the museum because art and music always complemented each other, especially when they can be......

The Walt Disney Concert Hall: Functionality Meets Aesthetics

...Walt Disney Concert Hall, designed by architect Frank Gehry, was built from 1999 to 2003 at 111 South Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles. The concert hall was constructed as a commendation to Walt Disney and its credit in the arts. Served as the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale, the Disney concert hall seats twenty four thousand people and it consists of a children’s outdoor amphitheater, a garden, a restaurant, and a small café shop other than the main concert hall. The exterior design of the concert hall can be seen as very unusual and exuberant in a sense. The building is comprised of “petals” that wrap each other creating space as they are curved and folded within their shape. These non-linear fragments create a certain ambience that expresses a flowing rhythm and movement. These organic, playful design features of the Walt Disney Concert Hall can be said to have an impact on the audience, the visitors of the concert hall. In fact, it is not only the music played in the hall that interacts with the audience; the aesthetics of the exteriority also affects the audience and enhances the experiences they receive; the design of the music hall welcomes the viewers, brings them together in unity, and liberates the audience’s creative imagination. The building is indeed inviting and welcoming to the visitors. The natural, organic pieces of shape seem more initiating and approachable than rigid, linear rectangular boxes, as......

...Music Concert Review I watched a concert named ‘Swire Symphony Under the Stars’ which is performed by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. I have never watched a concert not holding in concert hall before, this concert was held at outdoor in the Happy Valley Racecourse Recreation Ground. People just sat wherever they wanted, enjoying the performance while eating sandwiches happily. There were large screens projecting the stage for the audience at the back, everyone were excited and looking forward to the concert. The atmosphere of the venue was good. The orchestra played 5 songs totally, which were Dvorak carnival overture, Chopin Piano Concerto No.2, Mussorgsky Khovanshchina Prelude to Act One, Prokofiev Five selections from Romeo and Juliet, and Tchaikovsky 1812 overture. Among these five pieces I like the 1812 overture most, its historical background is Napoleon's invasion of Russia. Beginning with the hymn "God Preserve Thy People" played by cellos and violas, the strings played softly and sadly, created a mysterious environment. The piece moves through a mixture of pastoral and militant themes showed that the increasing distress of the Russian people at the hands of the invading French. The atmosphere started to be tense when woodwind and brass instruments joined the strings, it seemed that the war was declared, the Battle of Borodino. The oboe, clarinets and flutes had alternate interactions with double basses, with a lot of......

...Kim, Hyoungjoo MU106-M03 November 27 2013 Concert Report for My Music Class I attended the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s “Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto “on Sunday, November 3, 2013 at New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. The hall was much more magnificent than I expected. In addition, the deep hum of a thousand voices work up the excitement of me, I’m not a big fan of classical music concerts though at the entrance. At the beginning of the concert, the orchestra who is armed with tuxedos and full dress was seated on the stage. The concertmaster came out to tune the orchestra, and then the conductor made his entrance. They performed music from Hungary, Germany and Russia. Zoltán Kodály’s Dances of Galanta is the Hungarian work and Tchaikovsky’s beloved Piano Concerto No. 1 is the Russian piece. In addition, they explained these make significant use of folk music, adapting them in individual and compelling ways. By contrast, Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 4, which we hear before intermission, is more in keeping with the Viennese symphonic tradition. The combination of an abstract Germanic formal model with more geographically focused musical content gives this concert its profile. First, Zoltán Kodály’s Dances of Galanta opens with a cello melody with strong dotted rhythm. After that by the strings, they played the same theme by French horn, and then passed around the orchestra. The next, played clarinet soloist it was brief cadenza......

I had the music blasting and in between songs I hear it, a concert promoter’s voice blaring through my speakers, voice as loud as a morning alarm, “Usher, live in concert July 31st at American Airlines Arena. Thank God I was stopped at a red light; if not I might have run off the road. I reached for my cell phone, completely in shock, dialed my best friend’s number. As soon as she picked up the phone she yelled, “I know”, just two words, we both screamed! I told my friend that I was driving home and I would call her back in twenty minutes. Before I could get in the door my phone rang, it was her. We talked for hours about the concert and everything that needed to be done before the date of the show. Starring at my bedroom calendar I noticed I had only two months to prepare. I booked my ticket online, made an appointment with the best hairdresser in town, and scouted many outfits in my head, it was on! As the weeks went by I was in an Usher state of mind.

The consumer needs that Live nation strives for are those that if they can get a venue and have the necessary means to take the show to a specific location they would as mention on the video. Based on the product/market grid, I believe Live Nation in pursuing the market development strategy.
