Beatles Z320

     For my second concert report I thought that I would write about my only experience hearing songs of the Beatles live. The Rib America Festival was hosted by The Beatles Live Repertoire. The group dressed exactly like the Beatles, even had the same names, John, Paul, George, and Ringo. I had never heard any Beatles songs live before, so that was enough to get me off my butt. Not to mention, it was free entertainment, not a bad time at all.

     So the show starts, and I’m not sure what to expect. Paul comes out and introduces the band, ( very good English accent ) and then started out with “I want to hold your hand “. He mentioned that their songs would for the most part go in chronological order. And after comparing notes to my book, they were on track for the most part. All of the songs played before their break, were songs on albums released before Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band. I wasn’t impressed with this song, however. No, it isn’t my favorite song, but I just wasn’t impressed by the playing of the song. The song, the beat, something was dead about the song, hard to put my finger on it.
     The next song was “Please, Please me”. And I had never heard this song before that night, and I liked the song a lot. Then after hearing it in class, I remembered hearing it for the first time, good song. Hard Days night was their next song. And much like the first song, I do like this song, but the band didn’t do justice for the song. But this was the last song that I remembered not really liking. The rest of the songs I recall liking very much for one reason or another. The band must have just needed to warm up a little.

     So, now that the band had warmed up, messed up a few good songs, but at least they didn’t start out with my favorite songs, they were ready. Their next song was “Eight Days a Week”. I like this song. I just like the beat and how the lyrics go along with it. I don’t know if that is a legitimate reason to like a song, but it’s mine. They asked for some audience participation during this song. They wanted to us to clap with the instrument break when he sings, “Hold me… Love me… “ The audience was very participative. It seemed like the audience was having a really good time. Everybody just brought chairs or stood up if they wanted to see the band. I was particularly impressed with the vast spectrum of the audience. Especially the age difference. There were old people, middle aged, teenagers and even little kids. There was this one woman that stuck out like a sore thumb. She was just going crazy with the dancing, and was just singing out every lyric to every song. But what was more impressing, (especially since her dancing wasn’t) here kids that couldn’t have been any older than 9 or 10, were also singing every lyric. They were singing songs that I had never...

Concert Report

It was impressive to hear pieces composed by students. I cannot imagine creating something as complex as a musical composition, much less

The Concert of Europe

This is because, no power could be so “dissatisfied that it questioned the legitimacy of the entire order.” (83 p.145

Concert Report

Sir Edward Elgar's piece, The Dance, was a delightful piece. The piece began with the piano playing a quaint line of jumps which was immediately taken over by the female voices of the ensemble. When the higher voices came in, their timbre created the “dance”, both with the meter being established as a simple
