Afternoon Recital and Lecture Series

All music students must perform on a 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 performers which means add ons will be permitted.  Two weeks prior to the performance a form will be sent to each recitalist assigned that requests program information.  This form should be responded to no later than 1 week before the date of performance.  If you fail to respond 1 week prior to your performance you will not be able to participate.

Any requests for changes, cancellations or additions to assignments 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 (
Studio Teachers – If you are requesting a new Tuesday recital date for your student, you must select three new open dates and list them in priority.  You can find the recital dates listed below.  If a recital does not have room it will be listed on this page as CLOSED.

When submitting program information, please follow the formatting guide located here. Used with permission from Riccardo Schulz.
