The importance of being respectful

AS THE ACDA REGIONAL CONFERENCES are about to begin, a word of advice: “During a concert in the beautiful Meyerson Symphony Hall at last spring’s conference in Dallas, two people sitting behind this writer nattered negatively and continually during the performance. “When MY choir sang this piece we did it better.” “Her sopranos are so shrill.” “Oh my gawd, look at her shoes.”  It was, in a word, maddening.  We’re supposed to be professionals, we’re sitting at the big kid’s table.  Let’s all try to act accordingly when we are on the other side of the podium at our professional conference.”
