Degree Recitals (Including Junior Recitals)

As part of the degree recital registration process, all recitalists will be advised of, and sign off on their understanding of, the policies governing the legal use of audio and video recordings of copyrighted works.

  • Audio Recording – High quality audio recordings of all degree recitals are provided by the Recording Arts Department. Copies of the recording are made available at the AV Desk in the Arthur Friedheim Music Library.
  • Video Recording – Video recordings of recitals may be made with either the recitalist’s own equipment or with equipment checked out from Multimedia Services. Video recordings made of copyrighted works may be used only by the recitalist for personal pedagogical or portfolio/application use.
