The Concert Experience

The Concert Experience

For great music to thrive in Spivey Hall,  SILENCE IS GOLDEN

Just as painters need a surface on which to create their work, musicians need a background of silence in order for their performances to be heard and appreciated.

Spivey Hall’s superb acoustics make listening to music here exceptionally rewarding.  However, these very sensitive acoustics also amplify all other sounds in the hall, which can significantly diminish the concert experience. Additionally, most Spivey Hall concerts are recorded for delayed public radio broadcast.  Extraneous noise can adversely affect the recording quality.

Therefore, to optimize the concert experience for the performing artists and audience members alike: 

  • Please do not talk during the music.
  • Please cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing.  (Complimentary  tissues and cough drops are available from the ushers.)  If your coughing persists, kindly move quietly to the lobby.
  • Please minimize noise from cough drop or candy wrappers (it’s best to unwrap them quickly). 
  • Please turn off all electronic devices before the music begins.   (Browsing web sites, reading email or sending text messages may be distracting to patrons sitting behind you.)
  • Please do not rustle program book pages, papers, or jewelry during the music.
  • Please hold your applause until the end of each complete work, or group of shorter works. Clapping between movements of a work can often disrupt the continuity of the performance.  If you’re unsure of when to clap, wait for the musician(s) to turn to the audience, or for others to applaud first.

Spivey Hall’s musicians and your fellow music-lovers greatly appreciate your cooperation. Thank You…and Enjoy the Performance!
