Last week, a video of a woman who got a shock in mid-Stravinsky went viral on this site. Now, the person who was disturbed by the music has come forward to explain.
Stephanie Evans says she was not sleeping in the concert, just closing her eyes to concentrate.
‘In this instance I was sitting there very meditatively feeling the peace and bliss of that peaceful blissful place and then I was startled,’ she said.
The conductor, Scott Seaton, said: ‘I think it’s great that someone can have such a physical reaction to sound. And for something like this to happen very randomly here I think is great.’
