What is the etiquette for applause at a Masterworks Symphony?
- It is customary to applaud when the conductor enters the stage. You may take this cue from those who can see the conductor's entrance. Most symphonies are broken into movements, with a slight pause indicating the end of one movement and the beginning of the next. As a standard practice, applause is held until after all movements of the piece have been completed. If you are unclear as to when the piece has been completed, simply wait until the music has stopped and the conductor has turned around to face the audience.
