Concert Attendance Report

Concert Attendance Report

Attend a live, orchestra concert near the end of this course and submit a detailed Concert Report. Pay particular attention to the paragraph that describes the format for your printed report. Also, please remember that you’ll need to discuss all of the pieces on the program. It is your responsibility to find an appropriate orchestra concert and I have listed a few of links below that you may find helpful. Whatever you do, please don’t get caught at the beginning of the last week without a concert as you’ll come up short. Please remember that only live, full orchestra concerts are acceptable for this final assignment.Important: Regardless of your Final ‘online’ Grade, you must fulfill the requirements for the Concert Report in order to pass this class. Think of this project as the final culmination of your work in this class in the form of a term paper in essay form.
For this project you need to plan ahead. You will need to attend a Symphony Orchestra Concert or Opera in order to complete it. As long as it is a symphony orchestra concert or opera any event is OK. Solo recitals, musicals, chamber music concerts, jazz concerts, or other non-orchestra concerts will not be acceptable. If you attend an opera you must find a way to be able to see the orchestra at some point in the performance so that you can make your hand-drawn seating diagram (they are usually in the “pit” – yes, that’s what it’s called).”
