Concert Attendance Procedures

Click here to view the Current semester's Concert Attendance List.  Click here to view the Performing Arts Series events.

Students taking one-hour lessons must attend five concerts in which the student is not performing, per semester, one of which must be the Student Concert.

Students taking half-hour lessons must attend three concerts in which the student is not performing, per semester, one of which must be the Student Concert.

Concert attendance will be taken by ID cards handed to attendants who are present for every qualifying concert.  Students will be responsible for handing in their own ID card to a person in Wellin and picking them up at the Box Office after the END of the performance.  Your instructor will not be able to give you credit if you forget to hand in your ID card at the BEGINNING of each concert.  If you arrive late, you will NOT be given attendance credit.

ID cards WILL NOT be given to anyone other than the person it belongs to – NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE!

Fall Semester Concert general info

Students may attend only one Choir performance of the Family Weekend concerts to count towards the requirement since it is the same performance at both times.

Spring Semester Concert general info
Students may attend only one performance of the Choir Musical to count towards the requirement since it is the same performance each time.

All events take place in Wellin Hall unless stated otherwise.  Changes may occur, so please check e-mail for updates.

Although all students are required to attend the Student Concert, occasionally other commitments will necessitate flexibility.  A student who must miss the Student Concert may apply to the Coordinator of Individual Performance Instruction for permission to miss the concert. If that request is approved, the student must do one of the following alternatives in place of the Student Concert:

1. Attend two additional concerts as a substitute for the Student Concert, submitting a one page review/description of each concert – double spaced, twelve point font, about 300-500 words each. If you take this option, you will have 4 or 6 concerts to attend by semester’s end (depending on whether you have half-hour or hour lessons): the 2 or 4 regular concerts, and the 2 to make up for missing the Student Concert.
2. Do a comparative listening assignment of three recordings of the same work, submitting a two page paper comparing and contrasting those performances – double spaced, twelve point font, about 650-700 words.

These written alternatives are to be submitted to the Coordinator of Individual Performance Instruction and the student’s teacher not later than the day of the Student Concert.
