Woman Screams During Orchestra Performance When Bass Drum Hits

November 30, 2017


This is a video of the North State Symphony performing Stravinsky's The Firebird at the Cascade Theatre in Redding, California when a loud change in the music and bass drum blast causes a female audience member to scream. Most people are reporting she was asleep and the drum woke her, but I suspect she's just an easily frightened old lady. I mean the bass hits so hard it shakes the mounted camera, so it's no surprise it could shock an old woman. Hell, I got scared and I was just watching the video on my laptop with its shitty speakers and already knew the bass drop was coming. I'm a delicate flower. "You're poison ivy." Wipe with me, do it I dare you.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to lizzy, who agrees its even better to scream at an orchestra when it's really quiet.

    she was probably sleeping and the bass drums woke her up, happend to me a couple of time

    Usually an elderly scream like that is announcing a heart attack.

    Either way she's a crappy date.

    Maybe she came just then. Who's to say?

  • Jenness

    Oh, now I so want that to be the reason because that's so hopeful and positive.

    The scream wasn't nearly as bad a disruption as all the giggling it evoked. Good for these pros that they were able to just power through it.
