AbstractThe noise exposures of orchestra players from the canadian Opera Company (COC) during rehersals and performance of two operas were examined. The noise exposure obtained considers only the activity of the musicians with the COC, i.e., rehersals, dress rehearsals and performances. Although the noise exposure was found to be below the safety limit, the combination of other activities could result in exposure higher than the limit, posing risk of hearing loss.
