Student Recital Scheduling

We are pleased to offer student recital scheduling for the Fall 2021 semester, and we invite you to place your request for preferred recital dates, times, and locations.  At this time recitals are limited to degree-required recitals only.  Due to venue availability limitations, optional recitals will not be scheduled at this time.   

All recitals are required to conform to distancing, duration, and venue restrictions based on COVID-19 health and safety standards.  
 
Recitals must be reserved a minimum of 3 weeks in advance of your preferred recital date.  All recital requests will be honored on a first come, first served basis.  Every effort will be made to honor your date, time, and location requests. 

Please allow 48 business hours for your recital reservation request to be processed. 

COVID-19 Requirements for Student Recitals

All recitals are required to conform to distancing, duration, and venue restrictions based on COVID-19 health and safety standards, as per the information described on the Scheduling Office webpage.  Please review this information carefully to ensure that you understand how NEC's COVID-19 requirements pertain to your recital.  This includes all requirements for masking based on instrumentation and/or voice.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, some programming choices may not be possible. Please take into consideration all constraints when planning for your recital.

If you have questions about how to format your recital program in accordance with NEC's COVID-19 guidelines, please be in touch with your teacher and/or academic advisor for guidance.  Alternatives to in-person recitals may be possible. 

Due to COVID-19 challenges, NEC discourages students from inviting external guests to perform on student recitals.  

All recitals are limited to 90 minutes of performance time maximum, without intermission.
