  • All junior recitals take place in the Hockett Family Recital Hall.


  • To schedule a degree-required recital, a student first participates in the lottery which randomly determines the order in which the recitals are scheduled.
  • Visit the Recital Sign-up page to complete the process of entering the lottery.
  • Once your recital is scheduled, it cannot be rescheduled in the same semester except in cases of illness or similar emergency.

Soon after the lottery ends, those interested in a degree-required recital will receive an email with:

  1. The time of your appointment at which we will actually schedule the recital. This will be on a Saturday morning and/or very early afternoon; the exact date will be in the email
  2. The list of date and time options for your recital, along with further instructions.
