Ornamental etiquette of symphony concert
1. The symphony concert has an unwritten process. In the first half, a prelude is arranged as the opening, then a concerto, and in the second half, a symphony. As long as the concert begins, all the doors of import and export will be closed until the prelude is finished, and then the entrance will be opened again after the concerto has finished the halftime break. If you are late, please wait at the door. This is respect for those musicians and performers who are not late.
2. Each Symphony has several movements. In order to maintain the integrity of the work, please don't clap between the movements and keep quiet.
3. The conductor's hands drop completely, the violinist's bow leaves the strings, both hands fall naturally at the same time, and the pianist's hands leave the keyboard completely, are all signals of applause.
4. Even concerts designed for children are not as serious as concerts in general. Children should know beforehand that concert halls, unlike cinemas, cannot make noise and eat. During the break, talk to the children about their appreciation and let them learn to express their experience.
5. After the concert, you still have a period of aftertaste, so applause three or five seconds after the end of the concert is the highest level. If the conductor needs the audience to applaud and create an atmosphere in the music, he will turn around and beat the time to you. At this time, you need to keep pace and strive to become a part of the concert.
