Program Preparation

Student Recitals

It is the responsibility of the student and their private lesson instructor to prepare the recital program in the required format using the templates below. The program must be submitted to the area coordinator and private lesson instructor at least three weeks prior to the recital. The area coordinator must approve the final submission and submit it to the director of communications at least two weeks prior to the recital. Certain areas have specific requirements. Consult area-specific handbooks for this information.

The department covers the expense of printing 50 recital programs and gives the programs to the concert hall manager. It is the student’s responsibility to provide ushers for the recital. The printing of program notes and/or texts and translations is the responsibility of the student.
