RECITAL HEARING

For all junior/senior recitals, the student will schedule a hearing that will take place at least two weeks prior to the recital date.  (Piano recitalists must schedule a hearing at least four weeks prior to the recital date.)  The hearing should be given in the same venue in which the recital will be presented, normally John L. Hill Chapel or LRC 154.  At least three faculty members (which may include a faculty member from another area--vocal/instrumental) will hear the program and a majority vote will determine whether the recital may be presented.  If the hearing is failed, the recital must be postponed and a new hearing scheduled.  Music for hearings must be performance ready.  Standards for memorization are as set forth by the faculty.  At the option of the hearing committee a private recital may be recommended.
