Default dirty words

Hi All,

I just was wondering... How come most things to do with classical music, you hear a few people swearing? Like to conductor or other players? Sorry, I was just wondering, its sort of just blows me away when they do it!

Excuse any spelling errors.

I'm not sure about the classical world in particular, but I know there are a lot of people who don't think much of swearing.

Lol, they're a lot of people who think otherwise. I don't think you should feel more surprised when the conducter of a classical orchestra cusses then when a rock group's lead singer cusses; they're both going to be stressed during performances.

While I don't care for swearing myself, I find it's usually pretty easy to ignore.

I see your difficulty. I had pretty good luck with my only experience with a stand partner and conductor. Both were very nice.

Ouch, I think my conductor/band director in college should be pretty nice. I talked to her some and she seems ok. I haven't seen her under stress though.
