The student of the Orchestral Instruments program from Catholic University of America is required to present a graduation recital (MUS 902) of approximately 70 minutes duration. This recital is to be performed in public following successful completion of a private hearing before a recital committee, which may grant or withhold permission for public performance.
In case of withholding permission, a second hearing will be granted after approval by the adviser of the program. The candidate should apply for a committee hearing at least four weeks in advance of the proposed recital date.The student will also register for and publicly perform a concerto (MUS 944) and a major chamber work (MUS 944A). These performances normally will be separate from the graduation recital and must be approved by the student's faculty adviser. The required concerto normally will be accompanied by piano. The securing of the accompanist is the responsibility of the soloist. Repertoire used to satisfy the concerto and chamber music requirements may not be included in the 70 minutes of repertoire required for the graduation recital.
