Storyboard Text

  • This concert is so boring.
  • Shush! Don't talk while they're performing!
  • Look, they're going to switch ensembles during intermission. We came here to see the chamber orchestra, not the wind ensemble. Can we leave?
  • Concert etiquette? I clap when they're finished! What more is there?
  • Well, a lot. Don't do anything to distract the performers, don't record their performance unless you have permission, and-
  • What did I do? The song was over! I was clapping! That's polite, isn't it?
  • NO!
  • How would I know? It sounded like it was over!
  • The piece wasn't over, they were just between two movements. That's one of the most important rules of concert etiquette.
  • Oh, I had no idea. Thanks.
  • The most important rule of concert etiquette is to wait until the conductor puts his or her baton down to clap. That means the piece is really over; between movements or in large pauses, their baton will stay up.
