FYS 101 TenLive Concerts

Writing about live performing-arts events challenge us to express ineffable experiences with words. Impressions, comparisons, and descriptions are useful ways to start. But there are also artists' social, historical, and cultural contexts to consider. We will hear from the artists themselves and learn about how they would like us to experience their work. We can express valid arguments through both analytic and subjective perspectives, and we may even apply theories or induce our own.
