              A CLASSICAL CONCERT?"

.......c.  DISCUSSED REASONS FOR DIFFERENT AUDIENCE BEHAVIORS

.............2)  STYLE OF MUSIC PLAYED
EXAMPLE OF WHAT TO WRITE:
Audience behavior is different at a rock concert when compared to a classical concert because acoustic instruments (instruments which are not amped), as those played in an orchestra, often cannot be heard over a loud audience.  Standing and singing (participating with the performers) is acceptable at rock concerts; it is part of the experience but at classical performances it is about intense listening and observers need to be very quiet.  My preference is the classical audience behavior as I enjoy being able to see and hear everything being performed on the stage.
