Hi Class: WELCOME BACK !!

Great PERFORMANCE OF LEND ME YOUR COMB!!!



Please review your first new assignment for the New Year-) Get a head start by checking the following:

[attachment=1]West-Eastern Divan Orches ... _pSJOkmYBA

**We will be listening to this hopefully on TUERSDAY -

• Step1) Listen and observe The West–Eastern Divan Orchestra conducted by the world famous conductor Daniel Barenboim -for the entire piece
• Step 2) While you are listening, observe how the camera person is focusing in on each soloist and follow his/or her playing expressions – be sure to try and identify the instruments to see
• Step 3) Make a list of all the Woodwind and Stringed solo instruments as they enter from the beginning( 0:01) to (6:25) – you may also list brass instruments if you are sure of their name!!
**Remember that all the different instruments are all playing OVER the snare drum t h a t r e m a i n s c o n s t a n t t h r o u g h o u t t h e p i e c e (which is a member of the percussion family – so you do not need to include the drum)

Connections: Please look at this link and print it out for your folders:

READING: Link #1
Print out the attached document which tells you a lot about the “history “ of the piece and how and why it was created -
