How to Schedule a Recital

Schedule recitals online through the Program Creation Form. The Program Creation Form is most easily accessed from an on-campus computer. Please use Internet Explorer or Safari. DO NOT use Google Chrome. Through the Program Creation Form you will:

  • select an available recital date and time in Auer Hall, Ford-Crawford Hall, or Recital Hall; or propose an alternate location
  • create your recital program
  • submit the program electronically to your instructor / recital committee for approval 

You will receive confirmation emails from the online system as you complete each required step and reminder emails for required next steps.  Please note: your instructor(s) will not be notified to approve your program and recital date until after you have created the program.

More information on how to use the Program Creation form here: Recital and Program Creation Form.

NOTE: You are required to complete a new Program Creation Form, if you canceled a recital in a previous semester.
