The Music Moves Me – How To Attend A Concert

Do not let the big jewels and tuxedos intimidate you. A symphony concert should not be an esoteric experience. Music, after all, is not composed to scare people away. It has been composed to provoke listeners and to challenge them, but they still want to be heard. They are attention junkies, just like you. There are certain decorum on behavior and dress, but they are not there to turn people off; they are there to make the whole experience worthwhile and enjoyable.

What NOT to wear

I'm not a priggish Ms. Manners who is going to dictate the length of your hemlines or pleats of your pants. This is strictly unisex advice. I wear suits like its second skin, so who am I to tell others to wear what's appropriate to their gender stereotype?

Be classy

First and for most, do not be frumpy. Iron your clothes. Wash your hair. Put on some deodorant, or even a fragrance. Concerts are formal events.

On that note – how formal is it? Well, that depends on your artistic spirit. Do not let the dowagers in designer gowns intimidate you. You can be conservative or creative. A nice suit or dressy separates are a safe bet.


There is some debate about jeans. I'm a pro-jean person, as long as the rest of the outfit is being a formal event. Simply wearing an IRONED blouse / shirt with dress shoes classes up an outfit. That means nix the sneaks. A number of retailers offer dressy jeans. They are usually in a darker wash. I would avoid any jeans that are artfully torn, ripped, and faded. To put it another way – your jeans should look like formal trousers. They fit, they look nice, and they are complemented with formal wear.

Club attire

Do not wear your club clothes to a concert. Just … do not.

In the hall

The concert is now starting. You're banned, and excited to hear what this amazing new conductor or soloist has to offer.

Cell phone use

TURN OFF YOUR GODDAMN CELL PHONE! Is that clear enough? Oh, and do not text message, answer your phone, or check your messages during the concert. TURN IT OFF!

Be an active listener

Some may view classical music as boring. To the untrained ear, I imagine it's akin to listening to crickets. However, try to be an active listener. If you know the pieces ahead of time, research them. Look up the terms of the movements (allegro, andante, adagio, etc). While the orchestra is in full swing, pick out the theme, notice variations, let yourself drink in the details. Composers spent painstaking hours penciling in those notes, pay attention to them.

I say all that because a lot of concert goers just let the music wash over them. I want you to do the opposite. I want you to get involved. You'll appreciate it more.

When to clap

There is an issue of clapping between movements. A symphony is comprised of movements – some fast, some slow, some in particular forms. After each movement, there is generally a pause. DO NOT CLAP! Do not clap between movements. Look at the program ahead of time. Three movements, two pauses. Last pause – clap your heart out.

Intermission and cocktails

Now is your chance to schmooze! Do not let this opportunity pass you by! Get out of your seat – chances are you need a break from sitting for so long.


When getting drinks, I advise against strong cocktails (with lurid names) and shots. You've done so well at appreciating the music and the whole concert going experience, do not fall sleep now!


For conversation starters – do not talk about the weather. It's boring. Yawn! Talk about the music, silly! What did you think about that soloist? What was your favorite movement? If you like a particular part or piece, ask others if they felt similarly.

Encores and standing ovations


Each culture has a different view on both of these. In Switzerland, you've got to make the audience go into hysterics if you wanted an ovation. In France, they will stand up for anything. Use discretion. Do not be swept away by others sentimentality. If you were not moved, it's OK to stay sorted. If you were, and no one else is standing, feel free to shout out a Bravo! Egypt Bravissimo!


Encores are scary territory. For the musicians. Everyone loves to be appreciated, but there is such thing as over appreciation. I once sat through TEN encores of the Vienna Boys Choir here in Vegas at Ham Hall. The kids were cute, but come on now. It's past their bed time! Two encores is good enough. More than two, and it starts getting annoying. Without it's an egotistical, vain glorious soloist, there's no reason to bring them out a third time. They are working too you know. That's overtime!

Parting words

You're ready to get out there and be an arts supporter! Just remember, music is as much for the average joe as for billionaires. If you can really appreciate the concert, you ARE high class.

Classical Music Concert Etiquette: Piano

Classical Pianists of the Future

The great problems in presenting this topic are: (1) how not to make it sound condescending to the experienced concert goers, and, (2) still keep it instructional to the newcomer. While following the comments and observations extended to all types of classical concerts I slant them toward (piano), my having had the most experience in this arena. So then at the risk of boring the anointed, forgive me; and to those of you who are first timers at a classical concert I would suggest that even the more obvious elements of protocol and propriety may not always be evident. So let me give it a somewhat lighthearted try.



It is said that decorum at classical concerts is in transition. Of course, what is not? However, that being said, I am more a traditionalist in this regard and would suggest that attendees reflect on the thousands of hours the artist has spent over many years in refining that which he or she would present to you. An outfit you would choose to wear to a job interview or a business meeting would be appropriate. Children should be dressed in shirt and slacks or dresses. It would also be advisable to go very light on fragrances. Many people are allergic to perfumes and colognes.


Some venues will not let (young) children in the door so it is best to find out ahead to time what the policy of the house is. In general, a five or six year old would be welcome – but only if you are confident control will be maintained and that may be difficult to predict. (I remember an instance of a youngster rolling a ball into the pedals of a piano in the middle of a performance.) Leave the toys home. If, with the best of intentions, a youngster should become unruly, it is best to escort him or her out at the earliest moment with least disruption possible.

Advance Review of the Program Selections

If you can find out in advance what the repertoire will be, it would be very advantageous to listen to the selections (perhaps you can find a CD containing them). Reading through the musical score, if you have that skill, will also enhance your enjoyment. The internet is a great help in this.


When to Arrive

It is good to arrive ten to fifteen minutes ahead of a performance. Remember, you always forget where you put the tickets while you are trying to get out the door. And it usually takes longer to find a parking spot then you think. Give yourself adequate time. If you do arrive late, please expect to be listed between selections. Even if an usher is not present, follow this courtesy.

Once Seated

There are open seating or reserved seating events. Just purchasing your seat ahead of time does not guarantee you a 'specific' seat if it is an open seating event. If it is open seating it is first come first served. If you have reserved a specific seat it will be awaiting your arrival. Unless otherwise stated, children's seats are expected to be paid for. It is important to stay except except in cases of dire need or emergency.

Applause! Applause!

It is a sign of recognition and respect to applaud the soloist as he or she appears on stage. As you read your program you will note that on the more major compositions several (movements) may be listed as subcategories. It is best not to applaud between movements of these works. (At times there may be spontaneous applause from the audience when a particular movement is particularly well executed.) Often the artist will choose to continue from one movement to another with little or no pause. (This is another good reason for having heard the music before attending.) One can always follow the lead of the more experienced concert goers in this matter.

The Dash to the Parking Lot (Concert Grand Prix)

Do the few minutes you might gain leaving early (while the artist is being applauded) really make up for the wonderful encore (s) you might miss or the people you disturb while walking over them? It is considered disrespectful to leave before the concert is over and the concert is not over until the artist has received his or her final curtain call.



Sometimes things just happen. A chair collapses. The lights go off. A door slams shut. However it is best not to try unwrapping candy and snacks. Leave the food at home, or wait for an admission to refresh. Digital / electronic anything – OFF. (It is amazing the things that can be overlooked.) Once at a competition I was hosting, a particularly noisy phone, playing the Minute Waltz, started to ring and everyone was looking around to see who caused this faux pas – only to have the artist stop playing and reaching into his tux to retrieve his phone. A friend wanted to know how he was doing!) As a general rule, cameras, camcorders and the like are not well received at concerts. Many venues strictly forbid their use. Copyright laws are often in effect. If pictures are to be taken, it is best to obtain them before or after the performance. Often a reception is given and this is usually a good opportunity for a picture. (I recall an instance at a competition where a gentleman in a front row seat, and this was in close proximity to the piano, with his large camera that sported a huge telescopic lens, began blasting away as the playing started. good sense to stop his performance and coolly asked the gentleman to desist.) Even the more quiet cameras can sound like a gun going off – at the wrong time. I read someplace that a particular artist was so distracted by noise (and this is an extreme case) that he had his programs printed on silk!


Attendance at a classical concert should not be a trial. You are there to enjoy some of the most beautiful music ever written. In matters of deportation, let common sense be your guide. Always remember – If you have class, it shows, if you do not, it shouts.

Rock and Steel Information – Breaking Benjamin Vocalist Benjamin Burnley Fires the Remainder of His Band????

Breaking Benjamin vocalist-guitarist Benjamin Burnley has fired the rest of his band.

According to a story in Citizen’s Voice of Wilkes-Barre [the band’s hometown], Burnley axed guitarist Aaron Fincke and bassist Mark Klepaski via email after learning his bandmates had struck an agreement with Hollywood Records to issue a remix of their song ‘Blow Me Away.’
Burnley is seeking at least $250,000 and the exclusive right to the Breaking Benjamin name. Fincke and Klepaski both deny Burney’s claims and a Luzerne County judge has ordered arbitration. So far no one from the band’s camp has issued an official statement on the recent events.

Breaking Benjamin formed in 1998 in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. and signed with Hollywood Records in early 2002. They have gone on to release four studio albums that have sold well over 5 million copies in the US alone.
