To reserve time for a faculty recital, a completed Application for Conservatory Event form  must be submitted to Concert Production by the performing faculty member. We will also accept requests by email, including the performer’s name and instrument, as well as the desired venue, date, and time.

Faculty may begin reserving recital dates beginning May 1 for the following academic year. Dates are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Due to the heavy concentration of student degree recitals and dress rehearsals, we will not schedule faculty recitals during the six weeks following spring recess.

Recitals must be scheduled during academic weeks in predesignated slots, beginning at the following times:

  • Tuesdays through Fridays: 4:30 or 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturdays and Sundays: 1:30, 3, 4:30, or 7:30 p.m.
  • No recitals may be scheduled for Mondays.

Faculty recitals may not be scheduled against large ensemble or Artist Recital Series concerts, or against any conservatory-sponsored event of the same instrument.

Venues available for faculty recitals are Kulas and Stull Recital Halls, Warner Concert Hall, Fairchild Chapel, and the Cat in the Cream Coffeehouse. (ExceptionFinney Chapel may be requested for recitals involving the organ.)

  • If performing a faculty recital off campus, the faculty will be responsible for contacting the appropriate off-campus building representative.

All faculty recitals will be given 30 minutes for setup, and a maximum of two hours performance time, including intermission, applause, stage set changes, and music.

Up to two hours of dress rehearsal in the performance venue may be reserved when the recital date is confirmed, or any time thereafter. Additional rehearsals may be scheduled using the regular weekly signup protocol as detailed in the Reserving Additional Time in Conservatory Halls section.

The performing faculty member is responsible for scheduling rehearsal time.

The conservatory will provide printed programs for faculty recitals. Refer to the Information about Recital Programs section for more information.

▪    Programs for faculty recitals must be submitted to Concert Production a minimum of one week prior to the recital date in order for them to be printed.

Ushers and stage crew will be provided for faculty recitals taking place in Kulas and Stull Recital Halls, Fairchild and Finney Chapels, and Warner Concert Hall. Ushers will only be provided for recitals in the Cat in the Cream Coffeehouse. All other venues will be unsupported.

Any special instrumental or staging needs should be discussed with Concert Production staff as soon as possible after the recital is confirmed.

Conservatory Audio Services will provide, as a matter of course, audio recording of faculty recitals. Although recording is the assumption for faculty recitals, faculty retain the right to opt out of these services. Live streaming is available for faculty recitals upon request only.
