Reducing the Noise
Question: I sometimes find myself virtually deafened by the loud volume of the music being played at weddings and celebrations and amplified to accompany the dancing. I would like to participate in the dancing but I find this noise unbearable. What is the right thing to do?
Answer: There is hardly a point in lodging your complaint with the orchestra which is simply doing what they have been instructed by the family that hired its services.
Your only recourse is to approach the hirer himself and point out that things can be lively even at a lower volume. You may be surprised that there will be an understanding response which allows you to remain in the hall and join the dancing.
