Afternoon Recital and Lecture Series

All music students must perform on an Afternoon Recital at least once an academic year when enrolled in applied studio. Seniors are invited, but not required, to perform on an Afternoon Recital.  Each recital date has room for 6 performances which means Add-Ons will be permitted.  The Afternoon Recital Series and Lecture Series Form should be filled out and brought to the office no later than 10 days prior to the performance date.  If you fail to respond 10 days prior to your performance you will not be able to participate.

If you wish to be added on to a recital date please fill out the Afternoon Recital Series Add-on Form and hand it into the office at least 10 days before the requested date.  By submitting this application, you must understand that this is a request to be added onto a performance date should a slot become available.  This application is NOT to be used as a request to change your scheduled date. The applications are considered on a first-come first-serve basis and are considered in which the order they are received.

Any requests for changes or cancellations for the Afternoon Recital and Lecture Series need to be made by your studio teacher only.  They can email with the request for change, or Dr. Gary Fienberg (
