A Review from Music Concert in Aaron Copland School of Music

Table of Content

I went to a concert in Aaron Copland School of Music. It was an experience of a lifetime. I listened to a genre of music I never had listened to. At the concert three people performed. A vocalist named Dawn Zahralban (soprano), a pianist Anderson Brenner and a flutist Chrissy Fong. Although Chrissy only played for one song her performance left the audience wanting more and I wish I could see her some time soon.

I also noticed that in the back of the auditorium there was a camera crew filming the whole performance. The auditorium was very elegant looking. The majority of the people in the audience were young people in their twenties. That’s what I expected, it being in a college and all. The hall was rather big for such a small performance. It could fit approximately three hundred people and in the performance floor there was a piano a chair for the pianist and a table with a jar and a glass of water.

The songs performed in the concert were all mixed up between adagio, andante and allegro. Most of the songs went from andante to allegro. It was divided into five acts. Four of the five acts were homophonic and the other act was polyphonic. The performers were dressed very elegantly. There was about thirty people in attendance and they were dressed in there normal attire. Also the majority of the concert was in the dissonant form. Very rarely I saw a consonant song playing. The behavior of the performers was that they were very concentrated in their work. Keeping aware and avoiding all mistakes if possible

The pianist was really professional. Played spectacularly well. He gave the audience feelings of anger, sadness, and joy. The flutist although played one song was also excellent. Lastly the vocalist was the best part. She had a very high pitched voice sang both high and low parts. Sang both happy and sad parts. Gave the crowd mixed up feelings. The three put together made a very good show and I was very pleased with the results. In my opinion if she keeps singing she will be great some day at least in that type of music.

In total there was fourteen songs. Out of the fourteen I really enjoyed Malinconia ninfa gentille. This song was composed by Vincenzo Bellini and it was in adagio form and it was played consonant. The dynamics of this piece were very nice and slow but yet let the audience feel the emotion of both the vocalist and the pianist. Upon hearing this piece I visualized in my head a woman asking for some favors to something more powerful. I felt at ease with myself. I liked this composition the best because it was a constant melody through out the entire piece.

Out of the fourteen songs the one I least liked was called Glitter and be Gay. This piece was composed by Leonard Bernstein and was played dissonant and the singer would laugh and cry throughout the song and it didn’t give me no interest at all. It might have been that I have never listened to this genre of music before but it just got me mad for some reason didn’t really get the rhythm and melody of the song at times it was sad and other’s happy. This piece honestly made me kinda laugh because I thought the singer had got off key and so began to laugh. I disliked this piece the most because it kept changing melody and mood changed rather quickly.

This experience was new to me. I thought that it was a very wonderful performance. You can see from the look of the performers that they had been practicing this over and over and made the best effort even though it was just for a small audience. It was very different from what I expected. I didn’t even know who or what genre of music was going to be at the concert. I enjoyed this experience a lot. Although I never been to a musical concert unless I performed in it I believe that I wouldn’t go again to this kind of concert on my own because it was over to quickly. I know I wouldn’t have had another opportunity of going to a concert so I chose this one and believe me I wouldn’t recommend this concert to anyone. It’s too short and when you start getting the hang of it, it’s over.
