Music Concert Experience

Good Essays
I attended the Stones River Chamber Players on February 29th. This was played in the Hilton Music Hall. When I was going in I did not know what to expect because I have never been to a music concert on the MTSU campus. There were around 60-70 people who attended this concert. Most of the individuals who attended were more than likely there for a class because more than half were students who did not understand the concept of staying off of their phone. When the three performers came out they were playing the Cello and the Piano. There was also an older lady there that was singing what sounded like opera singing. All of the individuals that were performing were teachers in at this campus. I was very surprised that we have this much talent at our music department from the teachers. With the first act they performed songs called Mercy, Stones, Shelter, and The Lacemaker. On some of the pieces it seamed like the piano player was not doing a very good job at keeping up with the music because he seamed like he was getting lost in the music or just not able to keep up with all of the notes that he was playing.

I enjoyed hearing everyone that performed. I was very blown away with this performance. I am very glad that this campuses faculty is so joined together even if it is doing small concerts like this. I wish that I was able to hear the second act play but I guess I will have to go back and go to their last concert that they are performing this year. If I would have stuck with playing an instrument in college I would love to be involved in activities like concerts to perform for the whole school. I can not wait to go to other concerts that the school puts on but I hope that the audience in the next performances show a little more respect for the individuals playing and not stay on their phone for the whole time with the brightness up because it is very

    Being involved with the music department isn’t just for music majors or minors. There are many opportunities for the campus community to take part in the benefits of music through lessons, ensembles and performances. For those that enjoy music but do not sing or play an instrument themselves, Luke Carlson, assistant professor of music, said there are a variety of concerts and performances every semester they can attend. “Some of the audience members we get are family members,” Carlson said, “but we also have students, faculty members, and outside visiting people. You never know who's going to come to a concert, so it's just the sort of wonderful experience where we are all sharing music.” There are a verity of different groups and ensembles…

    Once we are seated, the concert starts with a small ensemble or jazz combo then alternating middle school bands, working up to the high school symphonic band. Like always, I enjoy listening to see if I recognize some of the songs I played when I was younger. The younger bands also make me look forward to the future when I will be leading them and helping them grow as players and people. After the first few bands play, I start to get a little impatient in my seat, because even though I’ve done this a thousand times, I still get performance nerves. Then, when it’s almost time for us to play, we find our seats which isn’t an easy task when wearing…
