HESTEC Concert Popular concerts attract all sorts of audiences from the youngest to the oldest. One of the popular concerts that I was able to attend and that I really enjoyed this year was the Hispanic Engineering, Science, and Technology (HESTEC) Community Event. This event was on Saturday, September 5, and it was opened to the public. The HESTEC event is a yearly event the University of Texas Pan American prepares in other to motivate and so that all the children, teen, and adults can explore and get more information of any career that may interest them. Besides this goal, the UTPA also invites some Tejano singer to perform on that day.
If the goal was to win over the crowd then it passed because they performed crowd pleasers, was synchronized for the most part, and gave the crowd something to remember. You can never go wrong with performing old school jams during halftime at a Historically Black College or University (HBCU). Tennessee State University’s Aristocrat of Bands is known for their song choices and unique formation. Senior Day held up to that title. Performing “Never Can Say Goodbye” by Jackson 5, while the seniors were being announced was something that was going to be memorable for the seniors well past the end of their performance.
Langston Calhoun Professor Gardner Music 004(online) April 22, 2012 The Concert To Remember #2 The United states Air Force Band of the Golden West has one of the most significant music selection I have ever heard. They have there organization to complement there great performance. Before each song they would tell you the song followed by where the inspiration came from. I really enjoyed hearing all of that because it makes you appreciate the music just as much. Captain Haley Armstrong led the band to a wonderful performance.
The group continued on for On Air in 1996 and The Time Machine in 1999. During that time, the first of the "Alan Parsons Live Project" toured around sold-out performances to audiences around the world. After Alan's move to California, a new version of the Live Project band was created in 2003, then again in 2010. Today’s band is made up of Alan on acoustic guitar, keyboards, and vocals; P.J. Olsson on vocals, Manny Foccarazzo on keyboards, Guy Erez on bass, Alastair Greene on guitar, Danny Thompson on Drums, and Todd Cooper on sax, percussion, and
The first concert report I am doing is the one I attended with my fiancée on September 14 of this year at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. The Group that was preforming was Stone Temple Pilots which happens to be her all-time favorite group. I can start by saying that the atmosphere was pretty laid back with a lot of people in my age group attending. As this would be my first concert of my life, I really didn’t know what to expect while I was there. I was also surprised with the amount of music I knew from them.
What a song! As a big Stevie Wonder fan, I was excited to hear this piece as a closing. The ensemble plays the piece gracefully from beginning to the end. I really enjoyed myself at this sponsored event as the music, the ambiance; the liveliness was a great combination. Music being played live should always be appreciated because the future is going downhill as far as appreciating true and live music.
This seemed to be quite true with the concert I attended at Texas Christian University on Saturday. My first impression of the opening act, Tim Halperin was surprisingly good. I’m a sucker for good keyboard licks. It began with a bluesy minor pentatonic lick that immediately caught my attention. The song seemed up beat and quite catchy to the crowd; but after awhile my
The first group started off the right foot with an interpretation of the Rocky Theme Song. The members of the band used instruments like trumpets, saxophones, trombones, piano, drums, flugelhorns, and clarinets. Throughout the song different members of the band would switch off doing impressive solos, however my favorite was one of the trumpet solos that was performed by Ian Martinez, he truly stole everyone’s attention with his energy and apparent love for his part in the song. The ensemble played many songs I enjoyed, and was excited to hear a rendition of an old classic by Count Basie. The second ensemble and the first ensemble were similar in style, but the second ensemble used considerably less solos and played with an electric guitarist.
After intermission, the students from the Magnet School played eleven short songs under the direction of their instructors Rebecca Markowski and Jennifer Hutchison, along with the accompaniment of the Delta Orchestra musicians. The performances were very enjoyable to me. The Delta Symphony opened with “Olympic Fanfare and Theme” by John Williams. I enjoyed this song because it was recognizable to me and I was surprised by this because I had not thought that I would recognize any songs at this concert. This song was very loud and powerful.
Guitars, Bass Guitars, Drums, Vocals, and much more were all used and still is used today. Guitars may have approved a lot since the 1950 with guitars making tons of new sounds compared to 1950 guitars had one job, but today music guitars do a lot more. The drums are a huge hit all around, everybody loves the drums and the drums have not really changed. The only thing that might have changed is the drummer and his or hers talent to play them. These instruments all have one purpose and that is to help with the music.
