  • Post YouTube links to each of the three pieces you selected for your concert You can find these pieces by entering the title in the search box on YouTube.
  • Explain why you chose each piece. Using the elements of music as defined by Kamien                              explain why you chose each of the three selections you included in your concert program
  • Use at least three musical 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. 

First Response:

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.

Second Response:

Choose a program that affected you strongly, either positively or negatively. What is your personal reaction   when listening to the program?
