Recital Procedures

COVID-19 Recital Policy – Spring 2020

This is temporary. Recital policies will return to normal when the UO is able to return to regular operating procedures.

Due to the modified operations being instituted by the University of Oregon, degree recitals for students graduating in Spring 2020 will be adjusted according to the following guidelines:


Degree recital guidelines for Spring 2020:


  1.  Recitals will be considered “passed” upon successful pre-recital hearing. The requirement to

       perform the public recital has been waived.

  2.  Pre-recital hearings may be done in one of the following ways (depending on the preference of the

       committee and the availability of resources):

  • Skype/Zoom (or similar platform)
  • Recording submitted by student (with or without accompaniment)

  3.  Students must provide a program (according to SOMD template instructions) at the time of the
       pre-recital hearing.
  4.  Create your recital program using the appropriate recital program template to customize a
       program for your recital. Your faculty advisor can approve your completed program via email.

Inorder for these templates to work
DO NOT edit it in your internet browser.

  5.  Per usual, undergraduate and graduate student recital committee membership must be approved
       by the UG/Grad Associate Dean (requests to be submitted via email).

  6.  Recital fee is waived for all spring term recitals.
  7.  Recital committee chairs must provide the UG or Graduate Office with the following:

  • Evaluation date of pre-recital hearing
  • Indication of pass/no pass/conditional pass
  • Recital “program” for the student’s file

All other recitals planned for spring term that do not severely impact a student’s degree progress will be postponed to AY 2020/21 (including required junior recitals, MM, and DMA recitals). For those students not graduating in Spring 2020, please discuss with your studio instructor about whether or not you should consider postponing.
