School-based music ensembles perform concerts at various times during the school year. In this activity, students will create a program for an upcoming concert by one of their school's ensembles. Students will compare and contrast how the elements of music and expressive qualities are used within the music selected for performance to contribute to the overall structure and intent of the concert. In creating the program document, students will also address the specific purpose of the concert, interests of the audience, and the educational experience of the event.
This activity was created as a result of the Arts COS Resource Development Summit.
