You are required to attend TWO rock/pop/country/blues/alternative/hip hop/etc concert during the session and write a reaction essay. (Examples of styles NOT allowed are classical, opera, musical theater) Your discussions can be relatively free form, including impressions and likes & dislikes expressed in the form of a music review, but it should ultimately lean toward the idea of placing what you heard into one or more of the styles about which we are talking in class. In other words, can you trace modern, current music being played in the real world to historical styles we are studying? Does the band/performer bring anything new to the style?
