Cultural Event I attended Beethoven's Ninth Symphony performed by the HSO, with the UAH Concert Choir, Community Chorus, and the UNA Choirs on September 16. It was at the Von Braun Center. I have been playing the piano since age 5, although I don’t play it anymore. So, this concert was really interesting for me. I did a little research about Beethoven before going to the concert. Beethoven started work on his last symphony in 1818 and finished it early in 1824. This was roughly twelve years after his eighth symphony. However, he was interested in the Ode to Joy from a much earlier time, having set it to music as early as 1793; that setting is lost. The hall was really crowded and dark so I couldn’t see the people who performed clearly, but I could recognize some of the instruments they played. They were: piccolo, flutes, oboes, clarinets

Unformatted text preview: bassoons, contrabassoon, horns, trumpets trombones timpani, triangle, cymbals bass drum and strings. The vocal parts consist of soprano solo, alto solo, tenor solo, baritone solo, and choir in four parts. I was in choir for three years, so I could recognize the soprano 1, soprano 2, and alto parts. The soprano 1 part is the highest, soprano 2 sings the middle notes, and alto sings the lowest notes. I love music, so I really enjoyed this concert. Although I don’t take piano lessons anymore, enjoy playing it, and I realized that if you know one instrument, it’s pretty easy to learn some others. I talked to one of the performers, and that’s what she told me. I plan to continue going to music concerts, because you can really learn a lot about music. And people who listen to music are culturally aware than those who don’t....

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
