Intro Sample...


Cowboy Fantasy followed. It too was played in quadruple mater. It started with a trumpet solo which lead into a soft flute introduction. The tempo was fast and the dynamics were ever changing. We were given trumpet and horn solos along with crisp snare drum rolls. After the middle section slowed the tempo picked up with a western feel and the arrangement ending in Home on the Range.

Light Calvary Overture which was played in quadruple meter was the last selection played before intermission. This featured a loud trumpet intro. As with the other selections the dynamics and tempo were ever changing. After a loud strong start the middle was soft and slow and the end was loud and much faster.

The Children’s March: Washington Post March was played after the fifteen minute intermission. Once again the ensemble was conducted by Randy Davis. This was a march played in duple meter with a constant tempo. The dynamics were bold and remained that way the entire time. There was a strong military feel.

Next we were entertained with a 1930’s piece, Benny Goodman: The King of Swing. This arrangement which was played in quadruple meter had a strong jazzy feel. The tempo started out moderate then slowed greatly. The ever changing dynamics matched the tempo. When the tempo slowed the instruments played very softly and as the tempo increased so did the volume of the instruments playing. Ed Winston’s clarinet solo was the focal point of the entire selection.

The National Emblem March, which was played in duple meter came next. This piece went from piano to forte. There were large accents throughout from the trumpets, flutes, trombones and saxophones.

The next song was God Bless the USA. This featured a vocal soloist, John Baldwin. The band played quietly in the background to accompany the soloist. The volume of the instruments was controlled greatly even thru the transitions. The vocalist was never overpower View More »

    Ted Bundy: The Raising Of A Serial Killer

    2455 words, 10 pages

    the word “serial killer” comes to mind, usually for me the name Ted Bundy is the one that dominates. Before Bundy was executed in 1989, he confessed to killing more that thirty women in almost a dozen states across the U.S. during his four year long string of murders in the 70s. “The thing that set Ted Bundy away from the serial killer’s stereo typical analysis is that he was such a mainstream All-American man that the Washington State Republican Party hired him, so cunning that he escaped from jail, twice, and so dashing that a woman friend used to send marriage proposals to him on death ro

It changed the way the world perceived music. In the past years, it has fallen, from the once mighty music giant, to a predictable pop culture machine catering to the weak minded. When MTV first aired, it was filled with music, 24 hours a day. Every now and then, a commercial followed by a VJ setting up the next block or giving out some concert dates for a big tour. There were countdowns, specialty ’shows’ that catered to specific

    One standard academic argument is that the media’s influence operates in terms of framing issues and setting the agenda for political discussion.

If that information is limited in some way, those opinions will be affected. Generally, the media have greater influence on undecided voters than on decided ones. They also have a greater influence at times of scandal or crisis, or when there is a highly polarized question driving an election. An example of that i
