When should I clap?

Many people get confused about when to clap during a work of music. After each movement, there is usually a short pause, and it has become the norm, to not clap at these little breaks and save all the clapping for the end (have your program book open and handy to follow the movements). However, there are times when the audience cannot contain themselves especially after we experience a fantastic soloist who just dazzled us with his/her artistry for a whole movement, then, we just all clap! So the short answer is don’t worry too much about it. Hint – watch the conductor between movements—if his arms are still in position and not relaxed, chances are, there is more music coming your way.
