The tempo that was maintained throughout was medium paced with good rhythm and ended in a soft chorus.The Gloria that was performed by the orchestra was filled with energy and enthusiasm from the beginning to the end. The piece began with a loud chorus where everyone joined in. As the piece progressed it alternated between the sopranos and altos on one hand and the tenor and bass on the other. In between were spots of softly sung music backed by soft playing of the orchestra. The instruments used to play Mozart’s Mass in C Minor were violins, cellos, double bass, saxophones, drums, trumpet and the trombone.On Thursday the 27th of October at 1pm, I visited St. Johns Smith’s Square to see Jonathan Vaughn playing on the organ.

It was a technically brilliant piece that needed a lot of skill and effort to make it sound pleasing and the organist did an excellent job which proved his skill and ability at the organ as well as his mastery over the piece.Three Chorale Preludes on Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland by Bach –Busoni was a soft organ recital that was so mellow and uplifting. The piece was very melodious and the rhythm alternated between slow and medium paced. Liszt Prelude and Fugue on B-A-C-H was a very challenging piece which was filled with a lot of chromatic notes. The instrument used for this piece was the organ which was soft and mesmerizing at times and loud and fast paced in certain places. The organist showed great mastery over the piece even though it was very lengthy and challenging. The piece was filled with a lot of trills which demanded speed and accuracy. I was happy that I came for this concert as it made me understand that hard work was necessary to excel.On Sunday the 20th of November, I went for the was a very memorable concert where the playing as well as the sound of the instruments was of a very high caliber.The piece was a short one, less than 2 and a half minutes and even
