    My middle son plays the violin and has been on a strings course this last week instead of going to school.
    Yesterday I went over to hear the end of course concert. The standard was amazing and it was a joy to listen to.
    The guy leading the course had come up from a famous music college to ead the course and he was conducting and waxing lyrical about the setting for the pieces being written and all sorts of other technical stuff.
    I think most of that went over my head because all I could think was "what advert was that?" But I was also proud that my experience opf attending these sort of concerts meant that I'm never the first to clap because I can never tell if it's the end of a movemnt or if it's the end of a piece (you shouldn't clap for movements ... aparently)

    never ever clap between movements... most distracting for players and a tad annoying for some listening.
