I had never really been to a big concert that had a well-known band. A couple of weeks before the concert I got some information about it, but really didn't think much of it. I talked with some friends about the band and we all casually decided to go get tickets for it. Little did I know what an absolutely spectacular time I would have.
Nathan, Alex, my sister, her friends, and myself all arrived at the Avalon Theatre in Smallville. We arrived about half an hour early so the place was just starting to fill up. As I walked closer and closer to the theatre, I felt myself getting notably excited.
"I'm about to hear a band that I have enjoyed listening to ever since my sixth or seventh grade year." I thought to myself.
Walking into the theatre, handing my ticket to the ticket lady, I watched as workers scurried about trying to make sure everything was perfect for the upcoming concert. Chrome edged boxes were stacked in a couple of corners with the occasional person grabbing something instrumental out of one. In the adjacent corner of the building there were Jars of Clay souvenirs. There were posters, CD's, clothing, key chains, and lots of other visually appealing items on the tables.
As the crowd built up, it moved towards the doors that led into the actual theatre. I could see that some type of fog machine was at work. A pale mist came out of the cracks of the door. The inconspicuous sound of music could be heard just over the chatter of the crowd of people. Behind those doors there was a thrilling adventure about to ta...

...nside of me. For my first time ever being at a concert, it was well worth it.
In the end, they said their farewells, sang one last song and then left the stage. Well, at least we thought they did. As soon as they left the stage everyone started chanting, "We want more!" repeatedly for about five minutes. They ended up coming back on stage and executing one final song. I thought it was very awesome of them to do another song like that for us.
When the final song was over and Jars of Clay was off the stage, the lights abruptly came on. Everyone started to leave the theatre. I still wanted to hear more of their music, but just as they had come out they then left in the same way. My adrenaline was still on a high point even as we got to our vehicles.
"This was definitely an awesome experience for me." I thought to myself. "I really hope that I can do it again."

- There is an event that I just can describe as one of the most unique and memorable in my life: attending my first concert. After years of listening to Ron Pope’s music, watching his YouTube channel, and following all of his social media accounts, the satisfaction of seeing someone whose music has been the soundtrack to my life for so long was unreal. There were moments that I had to internally remind myself that this is, in fact, happening in real life. Being a dedicated (some may say eccentrically so) fan is tough work – and I was rewarded with two hours of pure magic for one night.... [tags: Performance, Audience, Hearing, Vociferation]

- My first live concert was held at the Lone Tree Arts Center on September 9th. The venue was a modern performing arts center built in Lone Tree, Colorado. The event hall was fairly simple, there was a small stage for the performers in front of a large window overlooking the outdoor concert terrace. The green grass and the swaying trees and plants in the background gave the performance a wonderful backdrop. The ceilings were tall, and the entire room was very brightly lit.

- On March 30, 2014 I made the trek in to Denver, for a Masterworks performance of Litton Conducts Vaughan Williams. The performance was at the Boettcher Concert Hall at the Denver performing Arts Complex right in the heart of downtown. I can truly say that this was going to be an experience for me, since I do not ever take the opportunity to drive clear in to downtown Denver very often if ever at all. However, today was the day. I found my way around easily, finding the parking garage and eventually easing my truck in to a parking spot clear at the top away from other vehicles, hoping I’d have a better chance of pulling out with the big beast of a truck that I drive....

- From all the readings and class discussions about performances, the concepts will be demonstrated by classical and popular performances of music. According to Bourdieu, “Music is the most ‘spiritual’ of the arts of the spirit and a love of music is a guarantee of spirituality” (Bourdieu). Music is considered to be art due to its sound, structure and feeling it gives to individuals. In addition, music has a variety of genres to classical music from Beethoven to pop culture music such as Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga.... [tags: Performance, Music, Art, Concert]

- The Concert Experience and the Song as Oral Tradition Before the invention of written language that enabled the creation of book technology, the spoken word was the leading edge of communication. Spoken epic poetry such as the Iliad and Odyssey, the Anglo-Saxon Beowulf, and the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh was the content of the speech medium. These epics were created as spoken pieces, and because listeners lacked an alphabet to commodify them (separate them from their performance), the tales had to be heard and experienced first-hand....

- 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. The Rib America Festival was hosted by The Beatles Live Repertoire. The group dressed exactly like the Beatles, even had the same names, John, Paul, George, and Ringo. I had never heard any Beatles songs live before, so that was enough to get me off my butt. Not to mention, it was free entertainment, not a bad time at all. So the show starts, and I’m not sure what to expect.... [tags: essays research papers]
