Prominent theoretical chemist David Glowacki was ejected from a classical music concert at England’s Bristol Old Vic in June for disrupting a performance of Handel’s “Messiah.” He was trying to crowd-surf in front of the stage. Dr. Glowacki, an expert in non-equilibrium molecular reaction dynamics who’s a visiting scientist at Stanford University, was at a special “informal” performance; the audience was encouraged to stand and cheer loudly instead of the usual demure appreciation. He said afterward he couldn’t control himself when the performance moved to the “Hallelujah Chorus.”
