Concert Critique

Attend a live jazz music concert of your choice before April 18 and submit a 1000-word (about 4 pages, 12pt font, double-spaced) critique of the entire performance (all selections) along with your ticket stub and program (original only). Submit a hard copy of your paper stapled to ticket stub/program/receipt.

Describe the venue, the musicians, the instrumentation, the size of the crowd. Identify each selection by title, composer, and style. Use music terms, e.g., melody, rhythm, phrasing, tempo, etc., to strengthen your critique. Connect the examples with their social, cultural, historical contexts for each work.
