When I walked into the church there were a bunch of chairs directly in front of the stage for the audience, but there were also two rows of chairs on the stage. This was so when the group of performers finished their parts then they could take a rest over there and watch the solo parts of the concert.

The performers, the instrumentalists, and the conductor all dressed very formally, even more so than the audience who came to witness the show. People were joyous and loud as they found their seats. Nevertheless, the audience members were very solemn and quiet once the performers came onto the stage and the show started.

While the majority of the audience in the event consisted of artists and musicians themselves, there were also students and members of the faculty of our college whose attendance to the concert may be felt with growing degree of interest and curiosity.
With changes in time, music has had been classified to various genres. The genres have different tastes that accrue to its listeners. In my case, I attended two types of music concerts. One of the shows was a classical music concert and its venue was the American University.
The pieces performed included the guitars, the drums, the vocals and the synth. The performers had excellent posture while at the same time concentrated on the music without any form of distraction. The room was filled with classical music with orchestra composed of violins, violas, cellos and basses, woodwinds such as flutes.
