Music is experienced by individuals in a range of social settings
ranging from being alone to attending a large concert.
Musical performances take different forms in different cultures
and socioeconomic milieus. In Europe and North America,
there is often a divide between what types of music
are viewed as a high culture and low culture.
High culture types of music typically include Western art music such
as Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and modern-era symphonies, concertos,
and solo works, and are typically heard in formal concerts in concert halls
and churches, with the audience sitting quietly in seats.
