RECITAL SCHEDULING AND
PRINTED PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS


Weekly Student Recital

The Recital Coodinator should be queried for available dates. Once dates are agreed upon, the proposed program information should be submitted in writing to the recital coordinator at least one week before the scheduled date. The Recital Program Format form may be used. Otherwise include, 1. name of performers, 2. instruments, 3. name of pieces, 4. composers names and dates of birth/death, and 5. duration of the pieces.


Major and Minor Qualifying and Degree Recitals

Major and Minor Qualifying and Degree Recitals MUST be scheduled at least one semester in advance. Qualifying and degree recitals for the Fall semester must be scheduled to occur no later than November 1st (cutoff date), while Spring semester recitals must be scheduled to occur no later than April 1st (cutoff date). Hearings for the recitals will be scheduled at the discretion of the instructor, but no hearings shall take place after October 15th for Fall semester recitals or March 15th for Spring semester recitals. Recital dates should be scheduled far enough in advance of the cutoff dates to allow for rescheduling without exceeding the cutoff dates.

Scheduling is a two-part process involving:

1. Checking for available times and possible conflicts on the Department of Music Public Event Calendar.

2. Completing the Recital Request Form, which is available in the Music Office. For a recital to be officially scheduled, the form must first be signed by the Student, the Private Instructor, the Area Coordinator and the Recital Coordinator; and then submitted to the Department Chair for final approval and scheduling.


Printed Program Requirements

The recital program text, approved by the instructor, must be submitted to the Music Office at least 5 days before the hearing date, by downloading and filling out this form:

Recital Program Format (Word File)

The Department of Music will create the final program digital copy, making a proof copy available for approval or corrections at the time of the hearing. After the successful hearing, corrections to the program are to be submitted to the Music Office. Otherwise the student is to make a minimum of 120 copies for the scheduled recital. "Creme colored" Cardstock or Coverstock is to be used for the duplication. Printed programs are to be completed and on site at least 1/2 hour before the scheduled performance start time.

If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Music office.
