I heard from m. c- over at The Standing Room about a rather unbelievable CAM. You’ve got to read it to believe it. Honest.

At the concert I attended tonight I was reminded of a few other CAM items:

  • The CAM who saturates himself or herself in scent so strong that all around must either move or hold their breaths to survive. (This is more of an offense to other audience members, rather than the performers, but there have even been times when I, seated in the orchestra pit, can smell the darn scent.)
  • A CAM who likes to show his/her expertise by conducting a work from his/her seat. (And is so great he/she doesn’t even use a score. Wowzers.)
  • CAM is sitting in the audience but is a singer just like the tenor on stage and knows the part equally well. He doesn’t sing out loud, but leans forward from the front row of the balcony and mouths every word. (Yes, I saw this one recently.)

So … anyone else want to share? Let me know!
