Did everyone comply with these rules? I hope so and good on the person making the announcement; it's just a shame that it was needed in the first place. At my childrens awards assembly last week a mobile phone went off just as the first name was called so an announcement was made to please turtn off all mobile phones. 5 minutes later that exact same phone went off. The principal was on stage at the time and did not look impressed.
It was odd. There were a few whiny babies that seemed to settle down or were taken out but the audience behaved very well, actually.
The choir director did give the evil eye to someone in one of the first rows. I have no idea what that was about.
And then he stared pointedly at two choir members who were returning to their audience seats through a side door between pieces. These two were part of a group who had already sang and were off the stage in their reserved seats. They did what they were supposed to - they were quiet and didn't interrupt a piece so I don't know what the problem was.
I think I'll ask the mom of choir member that I am sure was at the first concert in the fall.
The director must have just had enough of bad behavior and was over-reacting a bit, I think.
I still applaud his stating the rules ahead of time.
