Concerts and Recitals 6.3 - 6.4

6.3.            Requirements for Student Recitals

  1. Make sure you have paid your Music Use Fee.
  2. Fill out the Recital Form completely (make sure you have obtained all signatures) and pay the $30 Reservation fee.
  3. Attach a typed copy of your recital program approximately as it will be printed. Indicate in pencil the length of each piece.
  4. All arrangements must be approved by the Director of the School.
  5. You may reserve a tentative date in the Concert Hall for your recital. When the Recital Request form has been signed by the Director, you may confirm your reserved date. Recitals may not normally be scheduled during holidays or the summer months. Pick up a Recital Concert Hall Reservation Form from the School Office.
  6. The recital form with program attached must be completed and turned in one month prior to your recital date. If it is not, your recital could be cancelled. The recital form will be signed by the Director and confirmed by the office, then put in the Student Pick-Up box for you to retrieve before your recital so that you can get the second set of signatures following your recital (your applied instructor and one other faculty member). Then return the form with fifteen copies of your program to the Music Office.
  7. It is your responsibility to notify the office immediately if you decide to cancel or postpone your recital. Failure to do so is a breach of courtesy to your fellow students and may affect your grade.
  8. Rooms that you use for receptions must be cleaned up, tables and chairs returned and in place, and trash removed. No reception may be held in the Concert Hall. No alcoholic beverages are permitted.
  9. You are responsible for your recital posters. NASM requires that fifteen copies of your program be kept on file in the Music Office.
  10. You are responsible for making all your own arrangements for staging and ushering. If you need equipment moved or other special arrangements, discuss them with the instrument technician. Arrange with your applied teacher for access to the building during hours not normally open.
  11. Sound equipment and cameras are not allowed in the aisles of the Concert Hall because they are a fire hazard.
  12. It is your responsibility to restore all areas you have used to a normal level of cleanliness and order. The Concert Hall must have all pianos replaced in their storage areas and the instruments and equipment that belong on stage must also be replaced. After you have done this your $100 cleaning deposit will be returned. See Music office.

6.4.            Junior Recitals

During the Junior year of study, all Bachelor of Music students with an emphasis in piano performance, instrumental performance, composition, or vocal performance, must perform a public solo recital presenting at least thirty to forty-five minutes of music literature. No hearing is required, but the approval of your applied instructor and major advisor is required. Recitals may be shared.
