Scene:  Chamber orchestra concert last night, again in a public space as glorious as the music, Biblioteca Henestrosa, Oaxaca.  Click on Edvard Grieg above to get a sense.

How, oh how, do you tell audience members to sit on their hands until the piece is over?  That would suppress the infernal texting too, though would not stop the free-range one-year-old from circling the venue.

Conductor Socrates Juarez: May I come watch you brush your teeth, slice an onion, or handwrite a note, with those beautiful hands?
