So much noise

I REFER to the letters which have appeared in these columns, regarding requests to students to keep quiet during Hongkong Philarmonic Orchestra concerts.

I have been a regular concert, theatre and cinema goer during the past year and must admit to usually leaving feeling frustrated and annoyed at the level of noise and talking in the audience during the performances.

I thought about writing to management asking them to include a no-talking request among the usual one of turning off pagers and watches. In the meantime I suppose I shall have to put up with the noise-makers spoiling cultural events.
