In addition to performing in ensembles, students also have the opportunity to give recitals and perform in a weekly seminar as a part of instrumental or vocal lessons.
When students are enrolled in lessons at the 300 or 400 level, they are required to attend a weekly seminar where they play before their peers and receive feedback from instructors. There are separate instrumental and vocal seminars. This gives students an opportunity to perform solo repertoire in a low-pressure environment. Piano accompanists are provided for both instrumental and vocal performances.
With permission of the applied lesson instructor and area coordinator, students have the option to give a recital. The length and repertoire of the recital will be determined by the instructor. Recitals can be individual or in partner with another student. Student recitals count as either three or four credits and are applied towards performance credits, but are not a requirement of the performance minor. Allegheny students interested in performing a recital should read the associated policies and procedures. After reading these policies, students can fill out the Request to Schedule Student Recital form.
