IF YOU HAVE ATTENDED A CONCERT THIS YEAR……..no tribue bands, djs, or cover bands….
Do a concert review report on any artists you have seen no longer than 2 pages…..
if you have seen an artists in the USA this year that would be perfect for you to do
DATE OF PERFORMANCE/ LOCATION OF PERFORMANCE:
NAME OF GROUP/PERFORMER:
INSTRUMENTS OR VOCALS USED:
NAME SOME OF THE SONGS/PIECES THAT WERE PERFORMED
Sometimes song titles are not (or poorly) announced. You may indicate these pieces by numeric identity (song #1…). Also, indicate what influences are present in the performers style and compare/contrast that with performers and styles learned in class.
NAME SOME OF THE MUSICAL TECHNIQUES THAT WERE USED
You must try to use some musical vocabulary here and explain the musical terms in the context of the performance. This can be a listing of musical techniques by the musicians but you must explain the terms and how they were evident in the performance.
WHAT WAS YOUR OVERALL IMPRESSION OF THE PERFORMANCE? WRITE A BRIEF SUMMARY OR DESCRIPTION.
This assignment is not intended to be the quality of a review in a publication such as the Los Angeles Times. However, this assignment is about being an “engaged listener” and then attempting to put what you hear into musical terms, which is quite different from saying whether you liked it or not. To a certain extent, some subjective opinions will be made; for example, a piece might sound like a blues to you, even though in strictly musical terms that is not the case. All that is asked is that you try your best at grappling with the MUSIC, and not just reporting your own impressions.
Failure to follow any of the above criteria will result in a 0 for your report.
