Recital Application Materials
- Stage Layout Form (pdf)
- Submit a performance program to the Music Department Office via the "Program Order" web form a minimum of 14 working days before your recital/concert date. Due to budgetary cutbacks and changes to program formatting, voice students will be responsible for preparation and duplication of any translations.
- You will be notified by email when a draft of that program is ready for you to proofread, within several working days after submission. Faculty/Ensemble programs will be emailed, or placed in appropriate mailboxes.
- Proofread the program with your applied instructor, making note of any changes, and return to the Music Department Office. Corrections will be made and if time allows a final copy will be given to you for a final proofread. If time does not allow for a final proof, the original corrections to the program will be made and sent for duplication. A signature from your applied instructor is required for approval to print.
It is the performer's responsibility to deliver a copy-ready design of your poster to UW Oshkosh Document Services or a duplicating facility of your choice. The Music Department does not pay to have student posters printed. Posters for ensemble concerts will be paid from Music Department funds. Ensemble Directors are to use IRC Services in the basement of Polk for design, and Document Services for duplicating.
Please note: University regulations state that posters cannot be placed in the stairwells of buildings or on bare walls.
Student recitalists are allowed six (6) hours of Hall time for rehearsal. Check the Music Hall book in the department office for available times, and submit a room request form to Julie. Keys for the Music Hall are to be picked up from Ashley just prior to your rehearsal time and returned immediately following rehearsal.
Students will be charged a $20 deposit when keys are picked up which will be refunded when keys are returned. NO EXCEPTIONS! This is to encourage prompt return of key(s) that are needed by other performers for their rehearsal time. Please observe Hall etiquette, i.e. NO SMOKING, EATING, etc.
STAGE AND RECORDING WORK ORDERS
Completed Stage Work Orders and Recording Requests must be submitted to the Music Office two weeks (or earlier) prior to your recital. Payment for your recording(s) must be submitted to the Music Office within two (2) business days of the submission of your Recording Request. If payment is not received within this time, the Recording Request will not be processed, and recording will not take place. Students will be notified by their campus email address when the recording(s) is ready for pick-up. This recording will be held in the Music Office for a period of no longer than two (2) weeks and will then be recycled if not picked up.
PRESS RELEASE INFORMATION
Please submit your concert information via email 10 days prior to the recital.
