Flash Activity: A Musician’s Tour of Your City

The Activity:

If a musician comes to your town on tour, what places would he or she visit?

In the comments section below, upload pictures of places in your city or town where concerts take place, and tell us why you enjoy attending these music venues.

The Theme:

We recently celebrated Carnegie Hall’s opening night concert. The Russian composer Tchaikovsky visited the United States in 1891 to conduct Carnegie Hall’s very first opening night concert. He loved meeting his fans in America, and he found New York City very exciting.

Bonus:

Join the fun on Carnegie Hall’s Facebook page! If Tchaikovsky were a guest in your town, where would you take him? Take a photo with your own cut-out Tchaikovsky and show us, and check out all the fun photos coming in from other parts of the world.

Find out more about taking your own journey with Tchaikovsky.

Hello John and others,

Well, Westlife had just performed in Jakarta two weeks ago and they performed in Jakarta Convention Center, anyway the next musicians who are going to perform in Jakakrta Convention Center are David Foster, Michael Bolton, Ashanti and more. The name of the event I forgot but exactly on October 28th 2011 they will perform in Jakarta. Unfortunately, I can not come to their concert because I have to go to Tidung Island to hunt some photos for the Photography Exhibition.hehehhe...

Well, in my neighborhood Jackson Heights in Queens, there aren't any music venues. But Jackson Heights has the best food in the city! And surely musicians like to eat. You can walk down any of the main streets and find Indian, Pakistani, Afghani, Chinese, Malaysian, Indonesian, Filipino, Thai, Korean, Mexican, Nepalese, Italian, Salvadoran, Dominican, and diner food!

A venue that I enjoyed last month in NYC was Roseland Ballroom, where Radiohead performed two shows in a row. I never considered it a small space before, but it felt intimate to see Radiohead there after previously seeing them in very large outdoor venues. (I also took cut-out Tchaikovsky there, and he thought that it was a little loud, but loved the show.). Take a photo tour of Roseland Ballroom.

If they're an up-and-coming jazz musician, there's a good chance they're play in Harlem at Creole Jazz and Supper Club

 

If they're a large choir or need a huge, resonant space, they'll probably shoot for the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, one of the largest in the world! That's what Sting did:

Here's a story about the rise of pop musicians playing in churches.

If they're a small, early music ensemble, they're almost guaranteed to sing at St. Mary the Virgin, which is just off of Times Square. I used to sing there often, and we call it Smokey Mary's, because they use so much incense!

If the musician comes to my city, Jakarta, perhaps they will go to the Shopping center in Senayan or Grand Indonesia Shopping town. Because there are a lot of things made from Indonesia sold here and also the food court including the traditional food.

 

Then, here are the pictures of the music concert venue in Jakarta, they are Jakarta Convention Center and Parkir Timur Senayan, Jakarta.

This is Jakarta Convention Center.

 

 

        And these two are Parkir Timur Senayan.

Those three music concert venues are really big, large and cozy so that the audience can enjoy the musician's perfomances very well.
