Do not talk or whisper during the performance unless there is an emergency
Applause is spontaneous and can happen at any time during the performance
Applause is not necessary
Applause should happen at the end of a music selection or piece to show appreciation for the music performed

Loudly, so that everybody knows you are there and you start immediately yelling for your friends
Quietly and respectfully, so that things can get settled and the performance can take place
Running around, visiting friends, and creating distractions from the performance at hand
Quickly and furiously, making wild noises that resemble zoo animals
Try to muffle the sound with your arm or hands.
Let it rip nice and loud, then comment on it!
Try sneezing on your neighbor.
Sneezing or coughing as loudly as possible to try and make it go away.
Why not? I am hungry and have this yummy tube of Pringles to eat!
It's only a soda, if I don't drink it now, I might die of dehydration!
Food and drink are not allowed in most auditoriums or concert halls. You should not be eating or drinking in any concert space.
I think I can have my Twix bar that I bought, the wrapper isn't THAT loud when i open it.
No, the musicians do not need your help, as they have practiced to perform the music without your clapping or tapping.
Yes, why not. The more the merrier when it comes to music.
Only if it is a song that you know.
I just can't contain myself, so I should be able to just clap away fanatically!
Leave! Why are you here?!
Have some patience and give the music a chance. If you still don't like the music, keep it to yourself and sit quietly. Your neighbor may really be enjoying it.
Boo at the performers because you don't like the music.
Start talking with your neighbor letting them know how much you dislike the musical selection.
Turn around and talk to whoever you like because your friends may be 2 rows behind you
Remain seated, quiet, facing front while the music is performed. Applause at the end of the composition to show appreciation for the performance.
Rustle through your backpack, papers, and other objects that make noise, distracting others from the music.
Talk with your neighbor about which parts you like and don't like DURING the performance.
Scream and yell after each piece about how much you liked it!
Clap wildly during the piece because it sounded so good
Scream BRAVO! during the performance.
Give a nice applause at the end of the piece of music and entire concert and tell them performers in person after the concert is over.
