Concert Report

For this assignment, you will need to plan ahead. You must attend a symphony orchestra concert, opera, or musical in order to complete it. As long as it is a symphony orchestra concert, opera, or a musical, any event is OK. If you go to a musical, try to find a “professional” rather than a “community” production. In any case, you must find a way to see the orchestra at some point in the performance (they are usually in the “pit”—and yes, that’s what it’s called…the pit).

Your Assignment

Write the equivalent of a 2-3 page report giving a review of the concert you attended. Your review must include the following:

  • What kind of listener were you at the concert? Why?
  • What pieces were performed?
  • What was the style of each of the pieces performed?
  • What was the instrumentation of the orchestra?
  • Draw out the seating arrangement of the instruments in the orchestra.

Analyze 3-4 pieces played during the concert using the following criteria from the course:

  • Unity & Variety
  • Structure of the Music
  • Purpose of the Music
  • Tempo
  • Volume
  • Rhythm
  • Melody
  • Harmony
  • Form
  • Historical Period

Did you enjoy the concert? Why or why not?
