incorporating research and academic sources into a music analysis for the Concert Report project, with a focus on Gustav Holst’s The Planets.

Introduction and resources
The Concert Report is our most important assignment of the entire term. It is our final project; your ability to successfully complete it showcases your skills gained in this course. Today, we take another bite out of the project by practicing our research skills in the context of music. We began our work with the Lyrica Concert ‘Theoretical Program’ with basic program deciphering and broad ideas for our introduction. Now, we focus on two small parts for the body of our paragraph, which is a music analysis. I have selected “Mars–The Bringer of War” and ‘Venus– Bringer of Peace” from Holst’s The Planets from our theoretical program. Please watch and listen to each video below at least once for this portion of the assignment.

Your concert report (final project) requires you to incorporate a cited academic source, in addition to citing the concert video you watch. Today, you will practice incorporating music-specific research into your writing. The information below walks you through this process. Research Gustav Holst and The Planets on the Oxford Music Online Dictionary (more reputable and universally accepted resource than Wikipedia). Read the scholarly article and take note on how it influences what you observed in The Planets. Here are instructions on how to access the database:
Go to PCC’s Shatford Library’s webpage (https://pasadena.edu/library/Links to an external site.). At the bottom of the page, click the “Databases” icon, which will lead you to an A-Z Database List. Scroll to “Oxford Music Online” and click the link. Enter your Lancerpoint username and password. Search for the composer Gustav Holst and read through some articles- you might want to narrow your search to this particular piece, The Planets.
