Description:

Choose two excerpts of a concert, one of a pop or rock concert from modern times and one of a performance of Baroque music. (The Baroque performance would by necessity be a performance of Baroque music performed in modern times.) Each excerpt should be approximately 10 minutes in length.

After viewing the concert excerpts, construct a comparison of these two concerts and address the following:

1. Explain why you did or did not enjoy the concerts.

2. Evaluate similarities and differences between music in the Baroque era and modern times.

3. Discuss the types of people who attended concerts in the Baroque era and modern times, and why people attended concerts in the Baroque era versus today.

4. Analyze how new technologies, such as digital media and the internet, change the ways music is experienced.

This paper should be 750-1000 words in length. This assignment should reflect knowledge and understanding of the course materials. Points should be supported by specific information from scholarly sources and musical terminology should be used to express ideas. This paper should be written in paragraph form using complete sentences with a clear introduction and conclusion. Be sure to reference both concerts in the introduction and conclusion.
