    On Tuesday, October 17, 2017, I attended a musical concert. This was the first time I had ever been to a concert and did not play. The concert was not what I expected. I assumed I was going to a symphony that featured a soloist clarinet; however, upon arrival I quickly realized that my previous assumptions were false. My experience was sort of a rollercoaster. One minute I was down and almost asleep; next I was laughing; then I was up and intrigued. The first song played was from a genre that I

    For my experience of a “traditional” concert, I had the privilege of being able to attend a concert from one of my personal favorite artists, Post Malone. This concert was held at Binghamton University in the events center, and sold out almost a month in advance of the show, so being able to attend a performance of this magnitude was surely an experience I will cherish. Advertised both by the artist himself and on multiple programs online, these programs were very minimal in information provided

    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

    Nelly Concert On Monday March 25, some members of the baseball team, my girlfriend, and I traveled to Murray State University to watch a concert performed by Nelly and the St. Lunatics. It was a terrible night to go anywhere because it was raining and storming the whole way, but there was nothing that was going to stop us from going to the concert. We where all so hyped up about it and couldn’t wait to head out. My brother, who attends Murray State, had gotten us excellent seats about seventy-five

As I walked through the entrance, I was astonished how the front of the building seemed like a regular old music shop with records and guitars on the wall, and a glass showcase. While the back of the building was appropriately bigger in size and contained black and white murals

    Personal Narrative- Concert As the dark stadium filled with fire, with the sounds of guns and bombs exploding everywhere, the crazed fans yelled at the top of their lungs.

    On Thursday December 10th, I attended a concert at Richland College, where set up on the stage, were an array of percussion instruments, but the first half of the show that we watched only used mallet instruments and drums. I had even heard them practicing right before the concert and the sounds escaping through the doors were actually very relaxing. Even then, I set my expectations low, because after all this was a community college and down one of the stairs I had noticed a cockroach scurrying

    this concert report I chose to go to a performance of student composers held at the Kimball Recital Hall. I chose this one because I wanted to see some of the talent that my peers have in the music realm, and also it was one of the only concerts I have been able to attend because I usually work at night. It was impressive to hear pieces composed by students. I cannot imagine creating something as complex as a musical composition, much less actually performing it, so this aspect of the concert was

    Winter Concert-Band The winter concert was a great experience. I especially loved the program because it really showed a decadent design. It showed falling snow, different sized leaves, little cute berries in between the leaves, and right in the middle it stated, “Cedar Ridge Band Winter Concert”. The winter concert part was the biggest part of the entire program, it was there to indicate that the concert is the main focus. The Symphonic Band went first. The music that they chose was Russian Christmas

    CONCERT REPORT #1 I chose to do my first concert report on Pearl Jam. The concert took place at Deer Creek the weekend after class started, so it was perfect timing to do this assignment. This was the first time I have seen Pearl, and I thought it was worthy of writing a report on. If one has ever been a fan of Pearl Jam, they of course know that Eddie Vedder is the lead singer, and right beside him with his wicked lead guitar playing, Stone Gossard. The other guys on the strings are, Mike McCready
