Describe An Event You Attended In Which You Didn’t Like The Music Played – IELTS Speaking Cue Card

Describe an event you attended in which you didn’t like the music played.

You should say:

  • What was the event?
  • Where were you?
  • What was the music like?
  • And explain why you didn’t like the music?

Sample Answer

(What was the event?) (Where were you?)I’m an ardent music lover. I don’t restrict myself to music at concerts. I sense and appreciate beautiful voices wherever they are, be it on the roadside or in a music hall. I’m a regular reader of music reviews in the papers and even grown accustomed to how certain critics judge the performances. So I’ve fairly good knowledge of distinguishing between good and bad music. My friend was about to get married and her parents had arranged for a vocal concert by a famous singer. So I was very much excited to attend the marriage. The day arrived, and I was desperate to watch her performing live.

(What was the music like?)(And explain why you didn’t like the music?)Much to my disappointment, her rendering was very average. It was obvious that she had not practised for it. Her voice was out of chord with the musical instruments. Infact, she forgot some notes in between and was trying to adjust. Many did not notice it and showered appreciations on her. But I could not tolerate it. She had been overconfident of her skills and tried to manage everything with her voice. She sang five songs out of which four were complete disasters. In fact, I noticed that the musicians had a tough time aligning with her voice. It was a shock to me as she had sung some of the best songs in films and had even received many awards. My friend’s parents had paid a huge amount of money for arranging the concert. I felt that she was not worthy of that payment. Had she performed the same way in a music hall, the critics would have torn her apart.
