Junior or Senior Recitals contain repertoire that requires 45 minutes of actual playing time. Check with your instructor or area director if you have questions about the repertoire you want to perform or the length of your recital.
Some areas have deadlines for the last acceptable recital date. Recital dates area also dependent on your area director and instructor’s availability. When choosing a date, make sure your instructor, area director, and accompanist can attend. You may not be able to change your recital date once the recital schedule is published.
