Contact conpro@oberlin.edu for more info.

All degree recitals will be given a minimum of 15 minutes for setup. (Exception: organ and percussion will receive 30 minutes)

Approved Recital Length:

Students presenting a junior recital are allowed a maximum of 35 minutes of music. 

  • Faculty members will be responsible for the accurate timings of works and are encouraged to assist students in designing programs (both for single and shared performances) that will be artistically satisfying while adhering to time constraints.

One month prior to confirmed junior recitals, up to one hour of dress rehearsal may be reserved.

Dress rehearsals are scheduled by emailing conpro@oberlin.edu. It must be approved by the student’s applied faculty (via email).

The conservatory will provide programs for required junior recitals. Refer to the Information about Concert Programs section of this document for more information.

▪    Students performing in a shared junior recital may email their programs together or separately. However, only one program will be prepared for the recital.

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 degree recitals.
