Since Monday, the numbers of personal emails I’ve received along with public comments on this issue have prompted me to put together a little survey about applauding between movements and whether or not orchestra concerts are pretentious…
More importantly, the survey allows respondents to identify their connection to the orchestra field. This will help define a clearer picture of whether or not any defined group of constituents (managers, musicians, patrons, etc.) has similar feelings on these issues. I’ll leave the survey up over the weekend and post something with the results next week.
The survey is only four questions so it won’t take more than a few moments of your time:
Make sure you stop by tomorrow, I have a very special treat in store on the issue of applause. A well known artistic name in the business is going to weigh in on the issue – so add a reminder to your calendar, you won’t want to miss out.
