The recital, for which 3 credits are earned, is required in the performance-major program and may be considered for one of the approved electives in the music education program. The recital must consist of 40-60 minutes of music based on studies in Principal Applied. Each recital must be approved in a hearing at least three weeks prior to the performance. The student is expected to demonstrate a concert-ready level of performance on all selections, as determined by a majority vote of three or more music faculty members. The performance of the recital is evaluated by the student's graduate faculty committee. A principal-applied voice recital must include works sung in English, French, German, and Italian.
