There is a huge difference between high school level orchestra and college-level orchestra. I remember once going to an informal school concert on Vivaldi’s winter, I was so shocked by the fantastic performance of only four violinists. They did try their best to show the soul of the music. However, there is one thing in common: the audience are entirely enjoying the language of music as soon as the concert started, and such language is shared throughout the world. Differences between races, sexes, and ages gradually fade away as instruments continue to speak. People from all over the world are united by this magnificent language, and that is the reason why I see some of my friends in the international student orientation are performing on stage. The piece of the music itself is quite classic, especially one movement (I forgot which one) that the conductor pointed out in the beginning is really exciting.
