Just a quick one here, throwing up the four concert reviews that I'm asking students to read for this week's sections. We're going to continue our trend of spending part of section time discussing how to write about music, by analyzing four different concert reviews. Three of them are very recent, while I picked the other one in order to give them some variety - a new music review, since that's what they'll be writing at the end of the semester.
