MUSC102 Sect 03
I truly have an open hear to all genres of music but I never attended a LMU music concert, so I decided it would be nice to support the music students by going to their fall concert. On November 23, 2013 at 8:00pm, I attended a LMU fall music concert. The concert was titled; “ The LMU Chamber Orchestra Fall Concert” and it took place in the Murphy Recital Hall. The show was free and open to the students, faculty, alumni, and the surrounding community. The College of Communications and Fine Arts (Department of Music) put on the concert and it included instructors, community members and LMU students. The environment was very clean, bright, and imitate because there was approximately 40+ people in the recital hall. I didn’t expect the place to have 40+ people because I didn’t think people support the music department here at LMU as much as they should. As it began to get crowded, I became excited. The most important reaction to the performance was the intimate environment, because it made it easier for me to focus on the musical pieces the orchestra presented. I became intrigued with the concert and I began to have more of an open hear to this genre of music.
The first piece from the concert I have chosen to discuss is entitled; “Trio Sonata for Strings in A major Op. posthumous”. The first selection came from the time period of (1653-1713) and was composed by Arcangelo Corelli, but published in 714 after his death. The piece included three LMU Double Bass musicians and they formed a Trio. The second piece from the concert I chose is entitled, “Voyage for flute and String Orchestra”. The second selection came from the time period of (1938), and was composed by John Coriglano. This piece included a guest Flute player by the name of Dr. Rik Noyce, accompanied by a String Orchestra with cellist, double bass players, violist and violinist.
I first piece that the Double Bass musicians played is...
