  6. Multi-Movement WorksTo Clap or Not To Clap, That Is The Question • Many Classical pieces contain more than one Movement (or section/chapter). • Clap ONLY after the last movement • For Example: Symphony No. 5 in C minor(Ludwig von Beethoven) I. Allegro con brio II. Andante con moto III. Allegro IV. Allegro

  7. Applause • Stage Entrances/Exits • Try to applaud until the performer (s) enter/leaves the stage • With large ensembles, the entrance is for the Conductor, concert master (1st violin-orchestra or clarinet player-band) • Conclusion of the concert. • Stage calls: At the conclusion of concerts, performers often return to the stage to acknowledge the audiences applause. Applaud until the performer has entirely exited the stage. • Standing ovations: Done when simple applause won’t do. Stand when you feel the music warrants such praise and/or when the majority of the audience stands. • After all movements of Multi-movement works (Look for the Movement Listings in the program) • In Jazz: clapping or otherwise acknowledging a soloist is expected even as the music plays on • Take the cues from the performer on when to clap. • When in Doubt, Don’t.
