Preparing Recital and Concert Programs

Updated Feb 14, 2022 - We are waiting for an update to audience/visitor attendance policy. As of today, only Don Wright Faculty of Music students/faculty/staff may attend concerts and recitals in person. All information below remains current until you hear otherwise via MPS or Graduate Studies.


Student Recital Programs

Step One: Read the Style Guide

Reading the Style Guide is an important first step!

Step Two: Prepare Your Program According to the Style Guide

Format your program based on the instructions in the Style Guide above so that it appears similar to the following:

Step Three: Add Your Program to the Appropriate Template

Student Recitals
Select the appropriate Microsoft Word template for your program below. Recitalists may also prepare their programs in another word processor of their choice, however, they must follow the formatting in the Style Guide above, and submit their program as a PDF file.

Please remember to update the footer information for additional acknowledgments (e.g. String Bank loans).

Step Four: Submit Your Program

Student Credit Recitals
Visit the Credit Recitals webpage for details on how to submit a PDF version of your program to the appropriate contact (Graduate or Undergraduate offices). Please include your full name in the file name plus the date of your recital (e.g. lastname-firstname-2022-03-28).

Please note that any changes to repertoire will require filling out the recital approval form, and receiving the necessary approvals, all over again. Contact the Undergraduate Assistant (mpsdept@uwo.ca) or the Graduate Student Assistant (ayardley@uwo.ca) as applicable for further details about changing your program.

Digital copies for audience members will be provided for download via the Student Credit Recital webpage (music.uwo.ca/events/recitals) If paper copies are required for accessibility purposes, please request via musicevents@uwo.ca at least three business days in advance of your recital. Electronic copies will be provided directly to your Jurors.


Studio Recital Programs

Instructors are strongly encouraged to share electronic versions only during the 2021-22 academic year. If printed copies are required, you may make your own photocopies for distribution to your Studio. Paper is available from the Marketing and Communications Office by requesting paper be placed in your mailbox (minimum two business days lead time). 

Please email a final PDF of the program to musicevents@uwo.ca for record-keeping. A historical record is kept in the Music Library each year of all recitals.


Ensembles, Special Events, Faculty Concerts, and "Fridays" Concert Programs

Generally, program information should be submitted by faculty members (or their TAs) to Rachel Condie electronically at minimum one week (5 business days) in advance of the event. If extensive formatting is required (e.g. all large and small ensembles, guest artists, personnel listings, including translations) two weeks is appreciated. Please contact Rachel as soon as possible if you are unsure about the program submission process.

For more template designs or any questions about programs at the Don Wright Faculty of Music, please contact the Marketing & Communications Coordinator (via musicevents@uwo.caat least four weeks before your recital or concert.
