The president of Cincinnati’s symphony orchestra says one of its recent concerts came to a halt when an audience member refused to stop recording a violinist’s performance.
Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra President Jonathan Martin tells The Cincinnati Enquirer a patron in the front row began recording violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter’s performance on a cellphone over the weekend.

Mutter reportedly halted her performance with the orchestra and asked the woman in the audience to stop the recording.
Martin says the audience member then stood up and started talking to the soloist instead of stopping. He said he escorted the woman out and she deleted the recording.
Mutter resumed playing when the woman left.
