The UMD School of Music presents over 150 student degree recitals each year. These public, mandatory recitals demonstrate advanced musical proficiency and fulfill undergraduate and graduate degree requirements.
2017 - 2018 Degree Recital Scheduling
Degree recital scheduling is currently open for Fall 2017! Here are some important things you should know about scheduling your degree recital:
1. Requests for recital and dress rehearsal times can be selected from the available slots shown HERE by completing this form. Recitals will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Please do not e-mail or call requesting a confirmation receipt of your form, as this slows down the scheduling process.
2. Fall semester recitals can be scheduled any day of the week in either Gildenhorn Recital Hall or Ulrich Recital Hall from SEPTEMBER 11 to DECEMBER 11, with the exception of university-observed holidays.
3. Upon requesting a recital time, the Scheduling Coordinator will send a tentative confirmation e-mail to both you and your studio teacher indicating which of your requested spots are being held for you. From that date you will have two (2) weeks to complete the scheduling process. Students who do not complete the process during this time will have to re-submit their request and their holds will be released.
4. Students are required to provide their own recital programs! Download the template here. Please note: the emergency exit instructions in large font on the back of the template are required by the fire marshall; do not remove them.
5. All recitals requiring the use of a projector screen must be held in Gildenhorn Recital Hall. Recitals that require projectors are not possible in Ulrich Recital Hall.
6. Questions? Check out the Recital Hall Policy Manual, or send an e-mail to the Scheduling Coordinator (Finance and Administration GA) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
