You are going to watch a video of a concert of Western Classical Music. Use the following guidelines to write a 2page paper about what you learned before, during, and after your experience. (You must use all of them.) Video Mozart: Violin Concerto No. 5 1. The first portion will be prepared before the performance. You are to research a few of the major pieces to be performed. In this section, you may tell me a little about the composers and the background of the music, itself, as well as the circumstances around it being written.
USE YOUR OWN WORDS! Do not plagiarize or paraphrase! Cite short quotes accordingly when needed. Don’t use undependable sources, like Wikipedia. Use books from the library or the library’s online databases (like Grove Music or Oxford Music Online).
2. Now, discuss the performance, itself. Describe what you listened to. What do you remember the most? How did it compare to your expectations? How did it make you feel? What did you think of the performer? Could you imagine yourself in the audience?
3. Now tie it all together. What did you learn from this experience, both in researching and witnessing this music? Would you watch a performance like this, again? Why or why not? How did this compare to your live concert experience?
Be sure to answer ALL of the questions. Your grade will be dependent on your doing so as well as tying them all together to get the main idea across. Your target audience is your fellow classmates. Correct spelling, grammar, and sentence structure are a necessity.
