Background info

  • This is the second Concert attendance report in my Music Appreciation class. The first one was the same requirement, just a different concert ( Reference only, do NOT use this one: YouTube Symphony Orchestra Gala concert, Various:
  • A recommended book for this class: is Understanding Music: Past and Present and I prefer this one as one source
  • Before joining this class, I barely can distinguish musical instruments (I can only tell the types and there are only around 5-7 types for me :D). However, I have almost finished my mini-mester (7 weeks), so I suppose to have pretty much musical knowledge now.
  • I dont know how to play any musical instrument, but I admire the people who can do it and hope I can play the piano soon
  • I am 28, a woman from Vietnam, who moved here for a couple of years. I love to listen to music: pop, ballads, acoustic, Rock, jazz does NOT seem to be my style. I've been to some concerts (not much) before when I was still in Vietnam.
