https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3r8jha4sTkw — Listen to this video and write a Concert listening evaluation .. General Guidelines to writing the paper.
AFTER THE CONCERT: Write your paper as soon as possible after the concert while the experience is fresh in your mind. What you include in you Concert Review will depend largely on the concert you attend.
FORMAT: Typed: double-spaced, 12 point, Times New Roman, one inch margins
Title page: Concert title, performers (do not list performers in larger ensembles), date of concert, course number and section, your name, and date.
Body of Paper: Length: Two to three pages. (Title page does not count as a page)
Attendance at a live performance is required; streaming concerts are not acceptable for this assignment.
STYLE: Write your paper in the first person. This is about your concert experience and your reactions. Avoid jargon, slang, and wordiness. Points will be deducted for grammatical and spelling errors.
CONTENT: What do you include in your paper?
The most important goal of the concert-going experience is to enjoy the music. If you are busy taking notes and trying to remember everything that you hear, then you are not listening and reflecting. There is not time to analyze the music in great detail in the context of a concert. The primary goals are to listen, enjoy, reflect, and to later articulate your impressions using musical terminology to the best of your ability through the writing of your Concert Review.
**What to include: Your paper should follow a standard format including an Introductory Paragraph,
Body (one paragraph on each work), Conclusions, and a Closing Paragraph.**
Introduction: Include name of ensemble(s) and/or soloists performing and the genre of music being performed
(Jazz Vocal Ensemble, Big Band, Jazz Trio, Etc..)
Body: Dedicate one paragraph to each work of music. In each paragraph give the name of the piece, composer, and performer(s) (if different from one to the next). For concerts with several shorter works, these paragraphs will be brief. You MUST attend the entire performance. (For concerts with several works, a minimum of 4 works is required)
• If possible, include historical context. Include the time period. Were there musical characteristics from that time period
that you were able to recognize? Did the piece sound like other pieces in that time period that you heard in class?
• Most importantly, include your overall impressions of each piece. Did you like or dislike the work?
What was it that you liked or disliked? Use musical terminology to the best of your ability to articulate what you liked.
• Can you relate the piece to anything you have listened to in class? Had you heard the piece before?
• Did you enjoy one piece of music more than others? If so, why?
• Have you been to a concert of this type before?
• How does attending a live concert influence your listening?
• What did you think of the quality of the performance?
• Given the opportunity, would you go to another concert of this type?
Things to Avoid:
• Do not give a “play by play” of the pieces. “First the piano…” “Next the Saxophones…” then the percussion….”
• Do not take unnecessary space with long lists of instruments, and performers.
• Avoid overused words like upbeat, smooth, entertaining, and cool.
• Avoid redundancies. For example, if an entire concert of music is from theSwing era, this does not need to be stated in each paragraph.
PET PIEVE OF MINE !! Do not call a piece of music a “song” unless it has words and someone was singing.
• Do not use additional sources without citing them. Careful with spell check: A Cymbal and a Symbol are different !
