I am a member of a string ensemble for adult beginners/restarters. At our concerts, one of our members plays on stage while the audience is filing in. She's only playing the challenging bits. When asked why she did that, the explanation was that the local community orchestra conductor required it when she played with them years ago.
Why would practicing on stage prior to a performance while the audience is gathering be appropriate? After all, we all warmed up in the green room and nobody else was playing on stage. I honestly don't have any experience outside of this group to compare the situation. What is the etiquette for pre-concert warm-up?
