Graduate (MM, GPD, DMA)

The graduate repertoire in viola is patterned after a typical undergraduate senior (MM, GPD) or graduate (DMA) recital. In order to provide some latitude, the requirements are not dictated. However, you must prepare sufficient material to perform a full solo recital containing works which show a diversity of periods and styles.
