|Calendar||Frequently Asked Questions|
What do I wear to a concert?
Most people wear their “Sunday best” (e.g. what they might wear to church).
When do I clap?
When the whole piece is finished. For example, there may be several movements, or sections, in a piece. The program indicates how many movements there are.
Why can’t I just walk in when I get there late?
The musicians and performers can see when the back door is opened (although the house lights are down, there are lights on in the lobby), and it is a distraction.
Why isn’t there a senior discount on every concert?
The majority of the audience at a classical concert is senior citizens. The regular ticket price would have to be raised, perhaps keeping some potential concertgoers away, to make up for the loss in income.
Why do the prices differ from concert to concert?
Concert expenses differ from show to show, depending on the guest artist, whether the whole orchestra is playing, or a small ensemble, etc.
Can you recommend CDs I could listen to of the upcoming works?
Barnes & Noble on Wards Road in Lynchburg has a display of works by either the upcoming artist, or recordings of the music that will be performed.
Can I buy CDs of the concert?
The Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra does not sell CDs of their concerts, but guest artists usually have CDs for sale in the auditorium lobby.
