When do I clap?

This can be a confusing question.  Why?  In the early days of Classical Music, audiences were noisy.   Clapping and talking were common during performances.  During the 20th century, this changed and it moved from clapping between movements to clapping at the end of the whole piece.  The problem here is that lots of people don't necessarily know when that is and it can feel weird if you're the only one who somehow didn't know.  So we have a different policy.  If you have an emotional reaction to the music and you want to express that then..do it.  If you loved a movement and you want to let it out....do it!  That's our policy here at Orchestra Geelong.

Do you hate phones?

No..we don't.  Perhaps this is not standard policy but we are a little different at Orchestra Geelong.  What we don't want are phones actually ringing or making other noises during the concert but we are happy for you to share the experience of our concert with the world through your phone.  So put it on silent, take selfies, check-in on Facebook.
