Student Recitals

  1. Student recitals are an integral part of the applied music program, intended to provide opportunity for every applied student to gain experience in solo/small ensemble performance.
  2. Student recitals teach performance and etiquette; how to be a discriminate, articulate & supportive listener; stage set up and management, ushering, and vocal and instrumental repertoire of all genera, performance media and styles.  All music majors and minors must arrange their schedules so that they can attend student recitals.
  3. Student recitals will generally be held at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesdays near the end of the semester.  Recitals will be performed in the Fine Arts Theatre, unless another location is specified.  Poster notices will be placed in prominent places in the music area several days prior to the performance date.
  4. All music majors and minors taking Applied Lessons will perform for Student Recitals each semester according to the requirements laid out in their Applied Lesson syllabus.   
  5. Students will be assigned to perform at Student Recital by either their applied instructor or their music area head (Director of Bands, Director of Choral Activities, or Director of Keyboard Studies).  Students may also volunteer to perform if they wish. 
  6. It is the student's responsibility to complete the program information form for their performances.  This form is available in the department office, and should be submitted to the administrative assistant at least 5 days prior to the scheduled Student Recital. 
  7. Applied instructors will help students prepare for these performances.  
  8. The maximum time for any student's performance at a Student Recital is about 7 minutes.
  9. Student performers are to dress up.  For ladies, this may include a dress, suit, or slack suit, with appropriate shoes.  For men, this will include dress trousers, jacket and tie, or suit and ties, with appropriate shoes.
