Concert Review MDC Wind SymphonyOn December 11 of 2012, I had an opportunity to attend a concert by the Miami Dade College Wind symphony Orchestra. The MDC wind symphony orchestra was the only performance of the night sadly. And it performed "An Evening of Handel, Schubert, and Haydn" on 0ctober 4th. The concert was held at the school's Boss Recital room. The look of the architecture of the room is awesome with an organ at the back wall and various little intricate designs on the walls. Stepping into the room felt like stepping in the architecture's mind. The room was crowded as I had expected and on the stage was seated the orchestra. The orchestra also as usual consisted of many violinists, cellists, violists, brass players and percussionists. Also present were the trumpeters, harp players, oboe players, pianist, and a drummer. Every member of the orchestra was neatly dressed; men in black tuxedos and women in black dress or pants. The concert master come to the stage to tune the orchestra giving way to the conductor who came to the stage, introduced as well as gave a brief description of the music that was to be played. The first symphony was the overture to Music for the royal Fireworks is a composition made during the Baroque era. Not only is its genre a suite but the music also poses a homophonic texture. It takes a range of instruments such as chordophone, aero phones and membranophones to create the piece. Wind instruments such as the bassoon, French horn, oboe and the trumpet could be heard clearly. The stringed instruments; violin, viola, double brass and the cell added to the tune which was punctuated by percussion instruments especially the timpani. The movement was broken down into 4 sections characterized by distinct tempos: Adagio, allegro, Lentamente, allegro. Adagio is a section that starts with a slow introduction at what is referred to as mezzo forte dynamic. The section is part of the major key set within the quadruple meter.Tonight I attended the MDC Faculty Woodwind quintet.
