Etiquette in a concert setting is extremely important for the performing ensemble. Appropriate conduct during an athletic event or a movie is different from a live artistic performance. We sincerely wish for our audience members to thoroughly enjoy themselves during our program.
For that reason, we will ask that they respect the following basic concert manners:
Turn off all cell phones and beepers.
Stay seated during the performance.
Applaud when appropriate.
Talk only between selections, not during.
Younger siblings should be seated with parents the entire time.
Be considerate of others when taking pictures or video taping.
Here are some more do's and don'ts of concert etiquette taken from an article in The Kansas City Star by Lisa Gutierrez
- Don't be late. It's distracting for the performers to concentrate if they see people moving around in the audience. If you do arrive late, wait until a song is completed before finding a seat near the door.
- Don't wave to your child on stage. (Performers should not wave to audience members, either.) Some parents even make faces at their chilren, a big distraction for everyone.
- Don't applaud before a piece is finished. If you can't tell when that is, wait until the director puts his/ her hands down or steps away from the lectern. If the piece has several sections or movements, wait until the final section.
- Don't leave during a song. If you must leave, wait until the song is finished. Again, any movement in the audience can be distracting to the performers.
