Recitals and Juries

Recitals and juries act as final exams for studio classes:

MUAP 143, 243, 343 and 443 in Term One, and MUAP 145, 245, 345 and 445 in Term Two.

These gradually increase in difficulty as students progress through their four years of applied lessons.

 

In first year, a 10-minute noon-hour recital is required for B.Mus. (Performance Honours) students, and strongly suggested for all other students. In second year, a 10-minute noon-hour recital is required for all students. Both first and second year students will complete a 10-minute jury at the end of both terms.

 

Third year students will perform a 25-30 minute recital in second term. Fourth year students will perform a 45-60 minute evening recital in second term, acting as a culmination of many years of hard work, talent, and dedication. In third and fourth year, all students will perform a 10-minute jury at the end of first term only

Recitals Classes: MUS 129 / 229 / 329 / 429

 

MUS 129 / 229 / 329 / 429 are non-credit courses required of all B.Mus. and B.Mus.(Mus.Ed.) students. To obtain a passing grade all students must follow the prescribed guidelines as specified below. Students should keep open 12:30-13:30 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and 20:00-21:30 on Thursdays and Fridays. Specific Sunday evenings are announced in September.

Students will not receive ensemble attendance credit for concerts that they participate in.


Students are required to fulfill the following attendance requirements for the 2015-16 academic year:

A) 2 FARLS Lectures
B) 5 ENSEMBLE Concerts
C) 10 AFTERNOON Recitals (i.e. 12:30 PM, M/W/F Quance Theatre recitals in which 1st, 2nd,
and 3rd year recitals take place; 1 12:30-1:30 Pm time slot = 1 recital credit regardless of how
many recitals take place within that 1 hour; student must remain for all recitals during the hour to
receive a recital credit).
D) 5 FOURTH YEAR Recitals (Notes: 1 grad recital = 1 fourth year in terms of recital attendance
credit).

Students are not allowed to double up on ensemble attendance credit when attending duplicate ensemble performances. For example if a student attends a Saturday performance of Music Theatre show, they cannot count the Sunday Music Theatre show as well for ensemble attendance credit.
