Student recitals occur several times throughout the semester, scheduled at a variety of times to accommodate student class schedules. Recitals last no more than 50 minutes and typically feature 8-12 students, each performing a short selection. A list of recital dates is available from the music office.
- Music majors must play a selection in two student recitals each semester.
- Non-majors are welcome (and encouraged) to perform in student recitals.
- Each student recital performance must be preceded by two coaching sessions with a university accompanist. Provide music to the accompanist well in advance of the recital.
- Performer dress code: MEN - dress shirt, slacks, dress shoes; coat and/or tie are optional. WOMEN - dress, blouse and skirt (below the knee), or pantsuit.
- Application forms are available in the music office. Recitals fill up quickly - they are limited to 50 minutes. On the application, you will need to include full title and composer (including dates) information and the length of your piece (within 30 seconds). Turn in application forms ASAP.
Students are eligible to perform a junior recital after completing one semester at the 300 level (sophomores may become eligible). Fill out a recital application during the semester before the semester you propose to give a recital (available in the music office). A junior recital is a half recital shared with another student. 20-30 minutes of music should be prepared. Recital checks might be required by faculty for clearance. Students should register for MUS398 during the semester of their recital. Students are responsible for all recital arrangements - consult the music office.
Senior recitals are for students who have completed at least one semester at the 400 level. Fill out a recital application during the semester before the semester in which you would like to give a recital (available in the music office). A senior recital is a full recital of 40-60 minutes of music. Recital checks are required the semester before the semester in which you would like to give the recital. Students should register for MUS498 during the semester of their recital. Students are responsible for all recital arrangements - consult the music office.
