Graduate Concert Guidelines

Students will perform a master’s concert that represents the work they have done during their graduate studies at WOU.

Students will identify a Graduate Concert Committee (GCC) comprised of three members of the music faculty, including:

  • The student’s MUP instructor
  • Two music faculty members of the student’s choice
  • At least one tenured/tenure-track music faculty member

The scope of the concert — its length and complexity — is at the discretion of the GCC.

Three weeks before the planned concert, the student will present it to the GCC.

  • All performers must be present at the jury. A video may be substituted upon prior approval by the GCC.
  • All aspects of the performance — musical, theatrical, & technical — must be available for review by the GCC.
  • Complete program notes — minimum of 600 words — will be presented to the GCC at this time.

The performance presented must be the one approved by the GCC.

Concerts must be presented in Smith Recital Hall or at a venue approved by the GCC.
