Many of my students have been reporting great experiences hearing concerts for their required concert review. Others and their parents have been contacting me for approval to review concerts they think would be fun to hear. In many cases, this is unnecessary because the concert may already have been pre-approved.
- Find a list of pre-approved concerts suitable for review here.
- Remember, performers must be at college level or above.
- Concerts must be live, “classical” (by which I mean “art music) or above.
- Musical theater pieces (such as The Music Man and Hairspray) pop, and jazz concerts are not acceptable.
- Opera is acceptable.
- A symphony concert usually is acceptable unless it is a “pops,” jazz, or folk music concert.
The concert review form that students use to report their concert-going experience is near the same location, here.
