ProBuilder is a self-service online concert program creator that the School of Music uses to generate concert programs. The School of Music requires the utilization of ProBuilder for all recitals held in the Whalen Center for Music and covers the cost of printing. For all recitals outside the School of Music, students may utilize ProBuilder to generate the concert program, but the school will not cover print costs.
