MUSC 1100 MUSIC APPRECIATION
SUMMER 2017 CONCERT REPORTS GUIDELINES
2 typed double-spaced pages each. Electronic submission is encouraged.
Outline for reference: your papers should be in narrative format, well proofread. This outline can be modified to adapt to a narrative format that is organized by
piece of music—that is probably the best way to organize if the concert has a large number of pieces on it.
Note: I have retained all of the information regarding concert attendance that would be given during the fall or spring terms. Not all of this will be applicable to an
online concert viewing. You won’t have a ticket or printed program to attach, for instance. So you can ignore any questions that would pertain only to live events.
SInce you are watching videos, you may also want to comment on the way the concert was filmed.
