    What is a woodwind instrument? The woodwind instruments are instruments that produce sound as a result of air flowing through them. Instruments that belong to this family include the oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon and flute. While all of the other instruments mentioned are actually classified as reed instruments because that is the way that the air flows through them, the flute is an instrument that makes its sound from air being blown across an opening. The openings are closed or kept open depending on the notes that the flute player would like to produce. The flute is easily one of the most difficult instruments to master, but it is also one of the most beautiful sounding instruments as it is often used to signify light and joy in music.…

I’ve been waiting for today all summer, today I get to pick which instrument I get to play. I’m not even the slightest bit mad that I have to go to my school a day before school even starts.

    The piece opens with a long low somewhat ominous blowing in the woodwind section. The string section accompanies the woodwind, building the shadowy dark tension. Gradually this sound builds and builds into a great rumbling crescendo. The music then gallops off from there into a cheerful frenzy that rises and falls like dancers in a colorful dance. It is played predominantly by the strings along with woodwind. The feeling is light and happy. A slight rolling in the percussion builds excitement.…

    orchestra is merely alike. This assumption is due to similar musical instruments, but in all reality an orchestra is a more advanced and diverse group with a very different sound. This specific group gives off the sound of classical music and is usually performed at a concert or a classical event. The orchestra deprived its name from the Greek word "orcheisthai," which means “to dance.” The orchestra is grouped and seated by its instrument. In the 1800’s the most important part of an orchestra…

    white baton began to rise in the air, and with a small twist in the wrist, slowly swirled in front of the orchestra, as if chanting a spell to lure the audience into a world of magic. At that moment, the harp began to sing with its angel-resembling voice, soon followed by the other stringed instruments creating a dulcet stream of notes. Piccolos and flutes…

    The UNL Symphonic Band concert, I Raise My Song To You, was on Tuesday, October 13. The first piece was the Overture to “Candide”. It was in a major mode and in triple meter. The piece started off with a quick paced forte dynamic with monophonic texture. In the beginning, brass instruments would play a melody and the percussion and woodwind instruments would play a melody in response. There is a decrescendo about halfway through, and the piccolo comes in quietly playing the high-pitched melody.…

    choice: whether to join concert band or a symphonic orchestra. While both are ensembles with a conductor that play music arranged into different parts together, there are several important differences to take note of when deciding which one fits each musician perfectly. First of all, not every instrument is represented in every ensemble. A concert band, often called symphonic wind band, consists, as the name suggests, predominantly of wind instruments. Woodwinds like flutes, piccolos, oboes,…

    movement as the piece transitions from soft calming sounds from the horns and woodwinds to hard-pressed portions that are dominated by the string group. This movement ends with a striking build-up of woodwind melodies and soft strings into a climatic burst of energy from the strings and percussions. The second movement is much like the first in terms of its introduction. Instruments such as the flute compliment the piece whenever played with the ensemble, and along with the oboe in softer…
