Boy, I think some of you are a little off base. There is a big differance between a Standing O in a field or winter compitition and a concert setting. I compititions, it is a long standing tradition to stand at the end of a show to show respect as the group leaves the field or floor. Goes back to when Drum Corps carried the Colors on the field, then trooped the stands at the end of the show. In a concert setting, standing ovations should be reserved for those very special moments, (at the end of the selection or concert). Either for very very well done selection, soloist, or a very special performance in general. Just my opinion. (based on years of experience.)

I think sometimes it depends on where you are...like, usually, we'd get standing ovations at field shows from our fans, and dood, does anyone ever sit down during awards? At least when they're announcing your class? Hehe! But I remember at the Sierra Cup in 1999 where we got a standing ovation from the entire stadium. I don't think those standing ovations are overused. :) That was great.

I dont understand the problem with peolpe giving standing ovations...
At Helix, our concerts usually ended spectacular at every show so... I always felt that we dereved them. We are a great concert band so I always thought that if you were great, you deserved it.
