Concert Ettiquette

Everyone experiences concerts in different ways; some people closely follow the printed program during a piece, some listen with their eyes closed, some follow each musician's every gesture, some do all of these and more. The important thing is to help create and sustain an environment where everyone in the hall can totally immerse themselves in the beauty and magic of the live performance of fine music.

Clapping

Clapping is the audience's way of showing appreciation—and if you are moved to do so, then please do. There are some traditions about when to clap that you might want to know about but they are definitely not regarded as official rules. Audiences often clap when the musician's enter the stage to welcome and acknowledge them. For multi-movement works, it is customary to hold applause until the end of the last movement, however sometimes listeners are moved to show their appreciation in between movements. If you are unsure, you can always watch what other audience members are doing or watch to see if all of the musicians in the ensembles are lowering their instruments.

Arriving

We suggest that you plan on arriving at least 10 minutes before the start of the concert. This will give you ample time to find that good parking spot and choose your seat. All Chamber Music Concerts have general seating. Arriving early also gives you the opportunity turn off your cell phone and peruse the program.

 

If you arrive late please wait to be seated until between pieces or movements and be as quiet as possible so as not to disturb other listeners or the musicians.

​Attire

As there is no set dress code for concerts, please wear clothes that make you feel relaxed and comfortable. You may see some people dressed in formal clothes while others may be dressed casually. Do not let your wardrobe keep you from enjoying a concert.

​Noises

Please do not talk, whisper, eat or drink during the concert as it may prevent those sitting around you from enjoying the evening. When in doubt, avoid doing anything that will make anyone take his or her attention away from the performers.

​​

Children

We commend any parent, guardian, grandparent, or mentor who wishes to make wonderful music a part of a child's life! Your whole family is welcome to enjoy Great Falls Symphony programs. However, keep in mind that some program repertoire or content may be better suited to youngsters of a certain age or experience and you want to make sure that the child is able to sit quietly without distracting other audience members.

 

Children are welcome at our concerts when in your estimation they are able to be attentive and enjoy the experience. In order to comply with regulations, all in attendance must have a ticket and seat to attend a performance.
