Recitals

To complete the Master of Music in String Performance, each student must present from memory two full­-length recitals comprising a variety of musical styles and genres. Students register for 480 for zero credit, usually in the same quarter that the recital is given. A permission hearing is required for all string recitals and the actual recital must be presented within two quarters following the granting of permission. The studio professor or a faculty-designated substitute must attend and pass the student on the recital.
