Policies Regarding Student Recitals
Information about pre-recital hearings can be found within in the Jacobs School of Music Bulletin.
Additional information by performance department:
Students should schedule the recital hearing with Prof. Szmyt two weeks (in some cases 10 days would be accepted) before the date of the recital.
Students must make sure that all participants (accompanists and chamber group members) are available on the scheduled date. Students are expected to perform most of their recital program at the hearing. Hearings take place in MA003.
|Jazz||Students should contact Helena Walsh at email@example.com|
For BM, MM, PD students only:
|Percussion||Students can schedule hearings through their studio professor or the chair of the department two weeks before the recital.|
|Piano||Students can find information about pre-recital hearings on the Piano Department intranet webpage.|

Students should obtain a Hearing Request Form, as soon as their recital date and time is approved. Please write the Voice Office GAs at firstname.lastname@example.org for a digital copy of the Hearing Request Form or pick up a hard copy from the folder outside of the Voice Department Office (MU105).
Contact Xizi Li at email@example.com immediately after scheduling a recital but at least 4 weeks before your recital. You must be prepared to play a hearing no less than 2 weeks before your recital. Hearings are held on Wednesdays in Recital Hall from 2:30-4:30pm. All musicians on the program must be present at the hearing including accompanists, chamber groups, small orchestras, etc.
If your department is not listed, contact your applied instructor or department chair regarding pre-recital hearings.
As per the Jacobs School of Music Bulletin, Doctoral and Artist Diploma recitals must be recorded by the Audio Engineering and Sound Production department for the Music Library when they take place in a Jacobs School of Music venue. A recording of equivalent quality must be provided to the Music Library by the student when a Doctoral or Artist Diploma recital is performed in a non-JSoM venue.
If a DM/AD recital occurs in a Jacobs non-hall venue or non-Jacobs venue where MITS recording support is not available, the student recitalist is responsible for recording the recital and delivering the recording to the Music Library. Students must contact the current “Head, Music Library Cataloging” in the Cook Music Library (see the Music Library Staff Listing to determine the appropriate contact).
