Morrison Recitals

Description and History

Morrison Recital in 2014

Initiated in 1997, Morrison Recitals are an informal student-run series intended to give as many music students as possible an opportunity to perform. They are suitable for a solo or chamber recital program, a master class or a Music 40 or 150 class, faculty recitals, or a performance by any of the department performance ensembles. They can also be informal workshops.

Morrison recitals are held during the fall and spring semesters on Mondays & Fridays at noon in Room 125 Morrison Hall. They begin at 12:10, and end by 1pm (though there are exceptions if the room schedule permits). Recitals do not take place every week; end-of semester is usually booked early and dates are reserved for keyboard, voice, guitar, & chamber music finals.

Auditions are not required, but dates must be reserved in advance for the current semester with the staff at the Practice Desk, Morrison Hall ground floor.
