The concert was known as Ensemble concert ("ensembles", 2018). I had much expectation for this concert because I heard so many good reviews from my friends who had attended this concert before. They had said that the concert is very entertaining and, therefore, I attended the concert while looking forward to being entertained. Like any other concert, I observed that food from outside was not aloud and people were restricted from going in some restricted areas of the school premise. I noticed that in this particular concert, the audience did not have official concert attire. Everyone was dressed in their own fashion. This particular music concert was extremely promising because the guest composer was one of the United States finest. Frank Ticheli has received much recognition in United State and Europe. Among his best performances include Philadelphia Orchestra among others. The first performance on stage was called one life beautiful by Julie Giroux. This performance was well coordinated and I could not fail to see how the audience was nodding rhythmically as a sign of satisfaction. I enjoyed the cooperation between the choir and the orchestra. The melodies were sweat to the ear and I enjoyed the harmony between the orchestra and the vocal group. I enjoyed the lyrics most. The soloist sung in a sweat nostalgic voice that reminded me of my childhood. The second performance included Simple Gifts by Frank Ticheli. The performance consisted of three movements in different setting. The first movement was a setting in “Yonder valley”. I later on learned that the hymn was appraised to the attributes of father James Whittaker CONCERT REPORT 3 3 3 who was a close member of the Shakes Spear who immigrated to America. The second movement included a dance from manuscript by Shakes Spear written around 1830s. It is important to note that the songs to the dances were sung by people in groups. The song was very entertaining and all hte audience joined the dance. The third movement was a lullaby titled “here take this lovely flower”. The song was a sung in a slow tune which was very soothing. The final part of the performance entailed “simple gift” which is a song that sometimes is normally attributed to Elder Joseph Bracket. The song was the grand finally since everybody in the audience stood up and joined the song. The happiness that the audience derived from the performance could be noticed by the applause, ululations and the shouts that followed the performance upon completion. Other performances included folk dance. The folk dance was conducted by Rickey Badua. I have always liked folk dance since my junior high school, and therefore, this was my most entertaining moment.’ The performers wore black suits which looked very polished. I was amazed by the performers’ skills in playing instrument. One of the instrumentalists was able to play multiple instruments at a go. This showed the highest level of skills that I had never witnessed in any concert. Some of the instrument that were mixed to bring the enjoyers melody included snare drum, tambourine, bass drum, xylophone, bongos, and congas, In conclusion it is important to note that this concert was attended by many people; both in college and out of college. I enjoyed every bit of the concert and therefore I cannot wait for the next concert. CONCERT REPORT 2 2 2 2 References Elias, G., Garfield, R., & Gutschera, K. (2012). Characteristics of games.

    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.
