I would say that the social worker was totally out of line. He brings a crowd of people in there and allows them to completely disrupt a performance.

It's OK for them to show their emotions as loudly as they please but not OK for the singer. Now THAT'S discrimination.

He should have arranged for the singer to perform for them in a less formal environment.

What reception would they have received had they disrupted a symphony concert?

I don't know how I would have handled the situation. I would have probably tried something like Art's approach. However, I would have most certainly spoken to that social worker (probably torn him a new one).
