Concert Comparison Essay All across the world people flock to musical gatherings to fulfill some sort of feeling or experience that they want to have in their life. These gatherings take on an infinite amount of appearances throughout every corner of our globe. However the three main things every musical experience should provide the audience is some emotional connection, meaning behind the performance, and thought provoking elements. In the United States we are so lucky to be exposed to many of these appearances that allow us to compare the experiences easily. For the purpose of my comparison essay I attended a University of Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra performance as well as a Bruce Springsteen Concert at the Console Energy Center in downtown Pittsburgh. The feeling and emotions that I felt at each concert were very different but at the same time had some parallels. Comparing the two musical gatherings is a very thought provoking topic and when recorded music is incorporated into the equation it becomes increasingly interesting. It would be very easy to conclude that each musical performance is very different, which is true, without digging deeper into the roots of the equation. In this essay I will dig deep into the heart of the musical experience and how each medium can enhance the music as well as detract from the music. One of the most important things that a musical experience should provide the listener is some sort of emotional feeling. This feeling can be as little as a one second or as deep as tears shed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
