Anna Zhu, Grace Nelson Post 2

Program: Tri- M
Impact statement: I am playing at the Tri- M Induction.
Reflection: I am playing a violin duo with Grace Nelson for the Tri-M honor society induction. We are playing the Concerto for Two Violins 1st Movement by Bach. We choose this piece because it sounds really nice and speaks to collaboration. Although each violin part is separate, they combine together to make amazing music. Much of the piece is also call and answer, meaning the first violin plays and the the second violin will echo a reply back. In addition, each part builds on top of the other. For example, when the first violin has sixteenth notes, the second violin has eighth notes to help keep the steady tempo and balance. This is true for when the second violin has sixteenth notes and the first violin plays eighth notes to help keep in beat. Overall, the piece can be seen to represent Tri-M honor society as whole. Although band, orchestral, and chorus are different parts of the fine arts department, when we come together to provide service to the community, we create music that speaks to compassion, character, and a willingness to serve.
