The song Now in Our Lives is more relaxed and romantic compared to his other quick, strong be-bop songs. The majority of the song consists of low, sluggish melodies. However, there are many parts throughout the song that have many fast notes played. There are quite a few changes in rhythm throughout the piece which stimulates the piece. There’s a nice piano, bass and drum accompaniment that help to establish the laid-back feel of the music.
Throughout the entire musical there was a significant job by the brass as a whole and I loved how it added to the show. The warm tone of the trumpets and trombones added to the dark and casual atmosphere, and was far more effective than a woodwind instrument as the lead, for this would create a sharp and often light hearted feel to most songs. The entire orchestra did a great job adding the background and really enhanced the emotion behind the musical. They mostly kept in the background, instead of being overpowering, keeping the focus on the play, not the music. Without an orchestra, a musical would just be very plain and boring due to the fact that the catchy tunes kept me
Fanfare has a dramatic start, just like a communicating between difference instruments. It makes sharp contrast between tempo and theme. After this program, I found another interesting thing is the band members rely on their feet tapping the floor, it's meaning applause.

I can still hear the triangle being played here also it gave me an attention because it sounds like an ice cream bell and now I can also here something like a tambourine and drum more. Listening to it I felt like I was in a circus or carnival because with this song I can imagine that someone was performing with the clown suit. The last piece “Symphony No. 1 in E Minor” has a dark and slow music it was a long piece and it went to a little bit fast to slow again. With string, brass, woodwind, and percussion the music became dramatic and kind of heavy mood to it.
That timing created by the rhythm moves the song forward. It also helps determine the length of notes in songs. This is the part of the song that most people end up unknowingly clapping their hands to during concerts or find themselves drumming randomly.
