After you have chosen your concert you will the piece on the program. It is best to research that piece (all movements) before you watch the concert.
You must research the composer and their life, their circumstances for composing the piece (commission? To dedicate to someone? For their own performance?), and the piece itself, i.e., what is its form, how was it received when premiered (did people like it?), and things such as what affect did it have on music.
Be certain to cite your sources using whichever standard method you choose.
