One Direction Concert Report - One of the concerts that I have attended was One Direction’s. One direction was formed by a group of boys from London in 2010. These young men were also known as Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. The band started off from a British talent show on television called the X Factor. During the audition, the boys were eliminated as individuals, but Simon Cowell saw great potential in these young men as a group.

My First Concert: Cobra Starship at the Troubadour - On August 11, 2009, my cousin and I headed off to West Hollywood to the Troubadour, where we would see one of the best band, Cobra Starship perform. When we arrived at the Troubadour many hours early, the security guard told us we had to wait around the corner like the other fans waiting to get inside the doors. So when we walked around the corner, we saw a few fans camping out. We found a spot and we sat down.

The Concert of Europe - The concert of Europe could be said to have had a substantial level of accountability in the preservation of peace because it brought about a common satisfaction of the status quo. The concert was forged under the thought that none of the great powers was interested in changing the international order to best suit their need. This is because, no power could be so “dissatisfied that it questioned the legitimacy of the entire order.” (83 p.145 Kupchan.) Some may argue that the concert was not created to maintain peace, because their intervention in states such as Spain was done to drive their own self interest....   [tags: European History] 1955 words

A Report About a Concert Attended - I attended a concert that was a piano trio. The instruments were obviously a piano, a cello, and a violin. The concert was done by two adults and one student. The student played the cello. The concert was held here on Oklahoma State's campus at Willard Hall. The room it was held in was a relatively small room. It wasn't a real concert hall it was more of a small kind of parlor room. Piano trios are meant for smaller audiences, so it worked out well.

Music Report about the Concert - My reason for attending the concert was to support some of my fellow colleagues who had invited me to see the concert, and I was not disappointed. Sir Edward Elgar's piece, The Dance, was a delightful piece. The piece began with the piano playing a quaint line of jumps which is immediately taken over by the women of the ensemble. When the women voices come in the feel of this “dance” comes alive as the meter is clearly established as a simple simple, and this is because their melodic lines a very rhythmic and hardly stay still just like a real person would during a dance....   [tags: Uber Caritas et Amor, Elgar's The Dance] 886 words

But if one is feeling adventurous then the mosh pit is the best place to start. Those who enter the pit are expected to have “Pit Etiquette” and to be respectful to other moshers.

He heavily influenced orchestral instrument coloration, and we can see that through other Russian composers’ music.
