Junior and Senior Recital
Satisfactory completion of MUS 323, Junior Recital, is a requirement in the performance option. Each student approved for a junior recital should register for MUS 323 during the semester in which the recital will be completed. Junior recital approval must be attempted in the first jury after passing the UDSE.
MUS 423A, Senior Recital is a prerequisite to graduation for all B.M. music majors (Music Composition majors must complete MUS 423B). Each student approved for a senior recital should register for the course during the semester in which the recital will be completed. For specific information on senior projects see your Area Director. Senior recital approval should be attempted in the 8th semester of study and no later than the 9th (native Freshmen) or 5th semester of study for transfer students.
Junior or Senior Recitals contain repertoire that requires 45 minutes of actual playing time. Due to Covid-19, you will be required to submit a video recital and progam in lieu of holding an in-person recital. Please refer to the directions in the recital syllabus for instruction and contact your area director for specific information pertating to requirements of your area.
Recital dates are chosen by lottery. Seniors are given first priority. Seniors and Juniors will have an informational meeting during the first few weeks of the semester in which they will give their recital. Recitals may be scheduled in DRH, A301, A311, or C100. Receptions are usually held in the DRH Lobby, C200, or A307.
