 Student Solo Concerts and Recitals

General. Scheduling of all student solo concerts and recitals is through the Conservatory Concert Production Office.

All recitals will be scheduled to occur before the beginning of the reading period of each semester. Requests for rescheduling must have the approval of the appropriate principal applied teacher.

Concerts are scheduled Tuesdays through Fridays at 4:30, 6:30, and 8:00 p.m., and on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30, 3:00, 4:30, 6:30, and 8:00 p.m. No concerts are scheduled on Mondays.

Honors Recital Series. A series of four concerts are scheduled each year, two each semester. Performers are chosen by the divisional faculties. The series is intended to acquaint the entire student body with the highest standard of student performance. Attendance at three Honors Recitals is recommended.

Senior Recitals. For the fall semester and for the January Winter Term, required senior recitals are scheduled upon request in the order received, beginning the previous May.

For the spring semester, required senior recitals are scheduled by lottery; requests for spring semester senior recitals must be received in the Concert Production Office by 4:30 p.m. on the last weekday prior to fall break to be included in the lottery. A maximum of one hour and twenty minutes, including intermission, will be allotted to each senior recital.

Students not majoring in Performance or Composition may, with the approval of their private applied or composition study teacher, give a non-required senior recital. Two previous appearances on departmental or studio recitals, or honors recitals, are required.

Students must register for private study in the semester during which they are to give the senior recital. In addition, a student's aural skills requirement must be completed before the senior recital can be scheduled. Students who complete all of the requirements for graduation in December of a given year with the exception of their senior recital or who are eligible to enroll part-time in their final semester, and who wish to continue their private study and perform their senior recital during the subsequent semester, must register for a minimum of two credit hours of applied study at the credit hour rate in effect during that academic year.

Late Senior Recitals. Students are expected to perform their senior recital during the last semester of enrollment at the latest. Students who need to give their senior recital beyond the last semester of enrollment must do so on campus during a subsequent period when the Conservatory is in session, either a fall or spring semester, or during a Conservatory summer school session. They must register for hourly private study lessons during the period of time leading up to the recital unless the recital is given during the first two weeks of the semester following the final semester of enrollment.

Junior Recitals. Students presenting a junior recital in December or during the second semester are required to share a program; a maximum of 35 minutes performing time is allowed for each student. Non-shared recitals occurring before Thanksgiving or during Winter Term are not subject to the 35-minute maximum, but may not exceed 70 minutes total hall time. For the fall semester and for the January Winter Term, junior recitals are scheduled upon request in the order received, beginning the previous May. For the spring semester, junior recitals are scheduled by lottery; requests for spring semester junior recital dates must be received in the Concert Production Office by 4:30 p.m. on the last weekday prior to fall break, to be included in the lottery.

Division Recitals. Division and studio recitals may be scheduled by divisions and studios in Kulas Recital Hall or Warner Concert Hall at any available time, using the regular weekly sign-up procedure. Long-term advance scheduling of these events is also possible through the Concert Production Office.

Recording. All Junior Recitals, all required and non-required Senior Recitals, and all Honors Recitals will be recorded by the Conservatory Audio Department. High quality cassette recording units installed in Kulas Recital Hall and Warner Concert Hall may be used to provide recordings of performances in division and studio recitals.

Concert Recording. All concerts by Oberlin Conservatory organizations are recorded. These recordings are available for class work and private listening, and many are available for purchase through the Conservatory Audio Department. Oberlin Conservatory reserves the right to use these recordings to promote the school and raise money for the scholarship fund. All students who participate in performances and recordings release Oberlin Conservatory from any obligation, financial or otherwise.

Programs. Printed programs for junior recitals, for required and non-required senior recitals, and for honors recitals will be provided by the Conservatory; copy for these programs must be submitted to the Concert Production Office at least one week before the recital date.

Programs for division and studio recitals will be typed and copied by the Applied Studies administrative assistant; these programs must be submitted at least three working days prior to the recital date.

Other. Ushers and stage crews will be provided for all degree-required recitals and concerts except division and studio recitals.
