Concert - CONCERT REPORT #2 Beatles Z320 For my second concert report I thought that I would write about my only experience hearing songs of the Beatles live.

As a result, some of the uprisings such as that of Italy in 1822 were suppressed thus, conveying to us that the concert played a robust role in keeping peace in Europe....   [tags: European History] 1955 words

The movie was something new and another interesting method that cause teenagers wanting to see other bands create movies and videos to go along with their favorite songs....   [tags: Music, Pink Floyd] 1906 words

As I was sitting there listening to the different singers sing I could not help but to think about how strong there voices are and how strong they must be to get over the big space of the performance center. Voice is just lost in such a big space like the one in the Price performance center, they have to work on their voices and make sure that they can sing loud, clear and strong to get it across to the audience....   [tags: essays research papers] 460 words

The UF Symphony Orchestra Performance I Saw - I attended the UF Symphony Orchestra performance where the theme was of 1809. The works of Haydn, Beethoven and Mendelssohn were performed. In my opinion the best piece was Symphony No. 101 in D Major “The Clock” by Joseph Haydn. The opening movement itself was Adagio-Presto. The slow introduction draws you into the music, making you listen for the different instruments and tones that come and go. It helps to create a base from which the music will take off. It allowed me to paint a picture and change it accordingly with the music....   [tags: Symphony Orchestra, performance, art, Haydn,] 591 words

Woodstock: A Peaceful Rock Revolution - Woodstock: A Peaceful Rock Revolution To some, the 60s were a decade of discovery as Americans first journeyed to the moon.

Yet for many people, the 60s symbolized a decade of love and harmony. Hippies exemplified these beliefs, and in 1969 they gathered at a music festival known as Woodstock to celebrate their music, their love, and their freedom in a concert that has remained on of the most influential events of the 60s....   [tags: Woodstock History Historical Essays]

Adventures at a Jamily Gathering - Adventures at a Jamily Gathering “This is a little ridiculous,” my brother sneers, shivering. It’s three o’clock in the afternoon, 30 degrees and dropping; we’re about 40 people from the entrance gate, and the concert doesn’t start until 7:30 pm. At this point, I’d have to agree with him. This concert is the last to be held this year at the Alpine Valley Amphitheater, and rightfully so—by the time Pearl Jam takes the stage, the temperature’s dropped to 15 degrees, and the band walk out doused heavily with stocking caps and scarves, and Eddie Vedder, the band’s frontman, welcomes the audience to “The Ice Bowl.” The crowd erupts in a roar that is part “Damn straight!” and part, “Yeah, and your asses have been sitting cozy in the tour bus all afternoon!” Wait, maybe that last part was just me… This is my third time seeing Pearl Jam in concert since I discovered the band in 1994, and though I am still dedicated enough to endure the cold in order to ensure a decent spot on the general admission hill, my enthusiasm for the band and its music has waned a bit since my first show....   [tags: Personal Narrative Writing] 1020 words
