Student Recitals

Student Recital

Scheduling Recitals

Student recitals are given on Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. in the Neel Performing Arts Center throughout the semester. Dates will be announced each semester. Since each Applied I and II music student is expected to perform at least once per semester in a student recital, course or work conflicts should be avoided.

When you wish to perform, please reserve a performance slot at (students will need to create an account). You must also submit a permission form which may be obtained from the bulletin board in the music main lobby, or printed directly from

The form must be signed by both the applied music instructor and the accompanist (if applicable).  Return the Student Recital Performance form to the Music Office by Monday at 2pm before Wednesday's performance. A professional staff accompanist is available.  See the schedule posted on the bulletin board outside the Music Office.
