When do I clap?
Musicians love to hear applause at the end of a piece–it’s how they know you appreciate their artistic efforts! If a piece has several parts, called movements, the audience saves their applause until the very end of the piece in order not to break the mood. When the conductor lowers his baton and turns to the audience, the piece is over.
