Use at least threemusical elements in your initial post. Bold the musical elements to make them easier to find in your text.
Explain your reasoning for why those three pieces would combine to make a good concert Justify your programming decisions
To help on the third bullet point:
Here are some notes about how I have programmed music for my concerts: Sometimes I pick pieces that are all of a similar sonic character, with similar musical elements. Other times, creating a contrast between pieces is important. Contrast can be created with musical elements, the genre, or type of instruments playing, even the subject matter of the pieces can create contrast. I also consider the order I present pieces in, paying attention to how the pieces create a narrative when performed in a certain order.
In your first response consider the program put together by one of your peers. What programming decisions did they make that differed from yours? What was the effect of listening to the pieces in that order? Consider emotional impact, musical elements across the program, or the narrative that may have been present in the program.
Choose a program that affected you strongly, either positively or negatively. What is your personal reaction when listening to the program?
