    Default What’s your ideal program length for attending a concert?

    When you go to a classical concert, what is your ideal length of the program for the concert? Program length means the added up time of all of the pieces in a concert program, and does not include intermission. For me, anything below 70 minutes is not an ideal program length for a concert. From 70-80 minutes is okay with me, depending on the pieces played in the program, but can leave much to be desired. Any length 80-100 minutes is my ideal program length for any concert. It leaves me satisfied because it doesn’t feel like there is a lot to be desired, and it doesn’t feel like I wanted it to be over sooner. From 100-110 minutes is tolerable for me, once again depending on which pieces are played. Anything above 110 minutes for me is too long (opera not included). How about you? What would you want your typical program length to be?

    P.S. I find my program lengths by putting together Spotify playlists of the pieces being performed and look at the length of the playlist.

    Can't say I care about program length, content and quality of performance being my priorities.

    What I am used to is an hour or less on either side of the intermission due to union rules. I would like it to be something like 80 minutes for each part of the program, kind of like listening to 2 CDs in a row.
