Classic FM's charity, Global’s Make Some Noise is on Friday 7th October. Our presenters have been getting in the mood.
Time to fight back against noisy mobile phones in the concert hall, with a genius symphonic prank.
Concert-goers are very familiar with it - the shock, disappointment and frustration when the ring of a mobile phone or a noisy app notification sounds in an otherwise silent audience, to spoil an exquisite moment of music.
This orchestra responded to this very 21st-century concert hall issue with a prank for their audience. Using a combination of phones in the audience, and a few meastro cues, this orchestra from Fort Collins Colorado turned an initial audience prank into a full symphonic experience featuring Jim David's composition, iCanon.
