Recital Times: Degree recitals should be scheduled in 3-hour blocks, to provide time for set-up/warm-up, for the recital itself, and for take-down/mingling. 

Weekend recitals must be requested in the following timeslots:

  • 9:30am-12:30pm (approx. 10:30 performance)
  • 12:30pm - 3:30pm (approx. 1:30 performance)
  • 3:30pm - 6:30pm (approx. 4:30 performance)

Weekday recitals are only allowed in the evening, 6:30pm - 9:30pm (approx. 7:30 performance).

Requests for recitals that do not follow this schedule will not be approved.

Rehearsal Times: Rehearsals for Degree recitals are scheduled in 2-hour blocks, and are subject to auditorium availability. 

For Autumn and Winter quarter recitals, students are allowed two 2-hour rehearsal blocks. For Spring quarter recitals, students are allowed only one 2-hour rehearsal. This is due to greatly increased demand during Spring quarter.
