Performance Opportunities

Degree Recitals:   Degree-required senior recitals are held in Ford Hall; junior recitals are held in the Hockett Family Recital Hall.  A lottery determines the order in which appointments to schedule recitals take place.

Elective Recitals:  Elective recitals provide solo and chamber music opportunities for students in degree tracks other than Performance or Performance and Music Education. All elective recitals are held in Nabenhauer Recital Hall and must be approved by the appropriate faculty member. There is a separate lottery to schedule these recitals.  Other possible venues for elective recitals include the Muller Chapel, Clark Lounge, and off-campus sites such as Longview or area churches.  (To schedule a recital in other campus venues, use the Campus and Events Center online request form.)

Repertoire Classes:  All students taking private lessons meet weekly for one-hour repertoire classes (‘Performance Repertory and Pedagogy’). These classes are designed to give students the opportunity to perform for one another and to provide a forum for lectures and discussions.

Community Concerts:   Both volunteer and paid opportunities are listed on the Community Engagement page. The School of Music encourages all students to perform and teach in the greater Ithaca community.
