When does an audience applaud and when does it sit

When does an audience applaud and when does it sit quietly during the con- cert? Are we allowed to take pictures or video of the Symphony? Does the Meyerson Symphony Center belong to all the citizens of Dallas? Do future concert-goers deserve to see the beauty of the Symphony Center? Evaluation Do student responses in the discussion exhibit an understanding of the proper behavior at a concert? At the concert, do students demonstrate good citizenship? Extension Activity 1. Review the following “applause rules”: Clap when the concertmaster enters at the beginning of the concert. Clap when the conductor enters at the beginning of the concert. Clap to welcome any soloists whenever they enter during the concert. During the performance, watch the conductor. Whenever the conductor puts her hands down and turns to face the audience, then the music is completed and the audience should applaud. 2. Have students take turns playing "conductor.” The conductor should face away from the rest of the class, wave his or her arms, stop and start waving a few times, then stop waving and turn to face the class. At this time the class should applaud. The game should continue until everyone in the "audience" knows when to applaud. Dis- cuss how applause signals the audience's appreciation and, with the class, make a list of other situations where applause is appropriate (for example, at sporting events, as- semblies and award ceremonies).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
