Concerts Across Time
Choose two excerpts of a concert, one of a pop or rock concert from modern times and one of a performance of Baroque music. Each excerpt should be approximately 10 minutes in length.
After viewing the concert excerpts, construct a comparison of these two concerts. Did you enjoy the concerts? If so, why? If not, why not? How does the music differ between the Baroque era and now? How is music similar? How does the role of concerts differ between the Baroque era and now? What types of people attended concerts in the Baroque Era? Who attends concerts now? Why do people attend concerts?
How do new technologies, such as digital media and the internet, change the ways we experience music?
