    The concert I attended was the University Band and the Symphonic Band wind ensemble, on Tuesday, November 29. The way the auditorium was set up kind of surprised me. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, but when I went inside and the saw how bright it was, and the size of the orchestra, I was pretty excited to actually see it played in person for the first time since I started taking the class. In my opinion, the university band wasn't as good as the symphonic band, but that doesn't mean I wasn't bored. I think my favorite piece they played was the Third Suite. When we came and saw that it was a wind ensemble, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, but it was pretty cool what we saw.
    The second band that played, the Symphonic Band, now that was what I enjoyed. The first piece, the overture to "Candide" was pretty cool sounding. I liked the percussion to it, and it had a sort of flow to it. I think I've heard this piece somewhere before, but it kept my attention more than the university band did. The other piece that I liked a lot was the Symphonic Scenerio from "Victory at Sea" I think the begginning sounded like something off of a news briefing on television. I liked the percussion for this one as well, and how they used cymbals. I think that that added a lot to the song, and kept the audience attention as well. The performance all together was shorter than I expected, it was only an hour. I got kind of confused when it was over though, because the conductor left the stage, but the orchestra stayed. Even though I'm not a fan of classical music, I think this was a neat experience to go to so I could understand more about how a classical concert is set up, and how it really sounds when you're hearing it played live.
