Concert Attendance

Attendance at a large number of live performances over an extended period is essential to development of a sense of musical perspective. This is a fundamental aspect of your musical education. The department takes this seriously and so should you.

The School of Music requires all music majors to complete six semesters of MUS 358 Concert Attendance.  This is a 0-hour course, but failure to complete requirement will prevent graduation, so be sure to include it in every semester's registration until you have passed all six semesters. 

Individual studios may have additional expectations for concert attendance, such as attending all events in which your studio teacher or fellow students are performing.  Check with your studio teacher for details.

MUS 358 is scheduled for Tuesday evenings when the School of Music has its Faculty and Guest Artist recital series, but you may use many other recitals and concerts to satisfy the requirement as well.  for further information, follow the links below to the syllabus, schedule, etc.

Requirements aside, you should support your friends, faculty, and colleagues. Attendance at live performances benefits both audience and performer—it is the lifeblood of what we do.
