Each music major must attend a total of 80 recitals in the course of the undergraduate career, but will receive credit for no more than 25 per year. This number will be pro-rated for transfer students and for those seeking a second bachelor’s degree to reflect the number of semesters of work remaining at the time of matriculation. Normally each semester the student will attend at least ten musical events, of which five are usually the departmental recitals that take place each Thursday at noon. Recital attendance credit may be received for other musical events sponsored by the Department of Music, before which recital attendance cards are distributed. Late-comers will not be given a card. The cards are collected at the end of the program. A student who is performing on a recital or concert may receive recital attendance credit for that recital or concert if the student is performing in less than 50% of the event. Attendance at many outside musical events may be credited toward the recital-attendance requirement. To obtain credit for a non-EMU event, please bring a ticket stub and program to the music office. The Head of the Department of Music and Dance will determine whether or not the event qualifies for recital credit. The recital-attendance requirement must be completed before a student will be cleared for graduation.
