You will have a minimum of four (4) pages total. No extra-large fonts or wide margins, . Sources: Three (3) or more sources. At least two (2) of these must be scholarly sources. Acceptable scholarly sources are dictionaries and encyclopedias, any article found on JSTOR, or any printed book in the library. My definition of a scholarly source is narrow, and only these three types will count. Make sure yours fit the requirement! Any additional sources beyond the first two (2) may be of your own choosing and might include Wikipedia, newspaper articles, concert reviews, concert programs, or any relevant website. How to find a scholarly source: To access dictionaries and encyclopedias online, go to 1) click on the “beginning your research” tab 2) click on “Oxford Music Online” 3) enter your search term(s).

If you need doing this, go to the library and ask for assistance. To access books, go to the library. to include in your report: All six (6) elements must be present to receive full credit. 1. Cover Page: WHO played, WHAT they played, WHEN, and WHERE. Do not list all of the individual orchestra members, but do tell me the name of the conductor and any featured soloists. List all of the pieces and their composers. 2. Research: Place what you heard in context. Choose your favorite piece from the night and write about it. Discuss why you chose it and also write about the composer, the piece itself, the historical context, the characteristics of the era, genre, form, mode, timbre, or anything else that captures your interest. Good sources will you! Including class vocabulary is a bonus. 3. Personal impressions and overall experience: Tell me about your personal reaction to the concert, the venue, the performance, and the event as a whole. This section can and should be highly subjective. did you like or dislike? Why? Describe the experience, the audience and their reactions, and whatever else you like. It is not required that you loved the experience. Be honest 4. Classical music today: Based on your own impressions, and conversations you may choose to have with another audience member (see the Concert Etiquette and Report Prep Guide on Blackboard), include a statement about the relevance of this genre of music in our culture today and/or if it has any significance. Why do concerts like this exist? With all the music and technology in the world today, are live concerts of this type still supported, necessary, and valued? Again, this is freely subjective. You do not need to be in love with what you heard, but be more thoughtful than “I hated it” or “I loved it.”5. Program: did you learn from the program that you did not know before? Did the information in the program you to better enjoy/understand any aspect the concert? You need to read the program to do this section! Note: If you are attending a concert that uses the LiveNote app, then that is the program. 6. Bibliography: Cite all of your sources properly, both in-text and in your bibliography, according to the dictates of your preferred citation method. There are many resources that can aid you with citations, including the Writing Center and online citation guides for MLA, APA, CMS etc. Grading: Grammar and syntax count for more than they did with your Concert Proposal.
