I have not heard live performances of these specific pieces or pieces by

date. I have. and highlighted it even further than if it had just been melody alone. I sometimes compose (but am just beginning) and I heard some interesting ideas from these pieces that I might like to try and use. The soloist produced a wonderful sound. each time rising above the previous instrument. Both bands played very well and the audience remained quiet and respectful. it sounded very rich and beautiful powerful. I don’t think there is anything that I didn’t enjoy this time. Both my high school’s band and this one sounded excellent. when the melody was being given from one instrument to another. What I liked most about this concert is actually a couple of things. Something new that I learned from this concert is how important balance is when composing a piece. form. but not harsh. and it sounded pretty amazing. style. I really Rhapsody for Euphonium and Concert Band. however. the band as a whole had a wonderful tone. Even when one instrument had the melody. heard performances of pieces of similar instrumentation/voicing. It seemed like a wave of melodies overlapping over each other. First. there would be another voice or two which contrasted with that melody. had a very wonderful tone and balance between instruments that really made the music wonderful. and genre from my high school’s band. . and there was on part in particular that I really liked. What I liked least about this concert was actually nothing at all. but I think that the Iowa University Band.these composers. as well as the Concert Band.
