How to 'punish' a performer who yells out during a performance
Date: December 22, 2015
Hello all. I'm looking for a bit of advice. I had my middle school choir concert last week and at the end of our last song a girl yelled a phrase out simply because she loves attention. Now, we share our concert with the band for a total of about 250 performers and our 750 capacity auditorium was standing room only...I am giving this information because if it was more like a small elementary day time (no offense, I did that for 10 years) concert I don't think it would be as big a deal. I give the students a test grade for the concert; wearing proper attire, professionalism, performance, etc. To be honest, they usually all get 100's. I'm not sure how many points to take off for this girl. Many students and parents commented about how rude it was so I know that everyone heard it and saw her jump and point. I was thinking 10 points off, but sometimes I think that's too much and on the other hand it may not be enough with how innappropriate it was, what would you do??
