Livestreams & Event Listings

As of Fall 2020, all on-campus Student Recitials will be livestreamed on the School of Music's Vimeo Channel. All Student Recitals will be listed on the School of Music homepage and on tickets.unco.edu.

  • Scheduling


    • All recitals require a Recital Request Form. This form must be submitted at least 35 days out from the requested recital date. 
    • Discuss your date with your teacher, your accompanist, and anyone else performing on your recital before submitting your request.
    • Please check the Performance and Rehearsal Calendar for availability when choosing your recital date. Keep in mind that this calendar is updated frequently and events are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Submitting a recital request form DOES NOT guarantee you a recital date, time or venue until the PVA Events & Ensembles Office has approved it and it has been placed on the Performance and Rehearsal Calendar.
    • No recitals will be held during clear week or final’s week without consent of the Director of the School of Music.

    Off-Campus Venues

    Several area churches allow our students to use their facilities for recitals. Information about those venues can found in the School of Music Office. Please note: It is the student’s responsibility to schedule off campus recital venues, and it is the student’s responsibility to cover any rental fees for those venues. UNC staff will not schedule off campus venues for students!

    UNC piano tunings/maintenance will only be provided for UNC School of Music venues.

  • Programs


    The Music Office will format all recital programs as long as the program information is submitted at least 21 days out from the recital date. Students may elect to format their own program using the program template provided below.

    A formatted copy of the program will be sent to you and your applied faculty 17 days out from your recital to review. Accuracy is the responsibility of the student and the applied instructor. Corrections must be submitted at least 10 days prior to the recital. There will not be any reprints after the approval to print has been given.

    Please contact the school of music at recitals@unco.edu with any questions, additional formatting requests, or for additional information.

    Submit Program Information

    Student Recital Template

    Students that format their own program must use the template below and will need to have their program approved by their advisor and the Music Office prior to their recital. Students will be responsible for printing their own programs and must submit at least 8 copies of the approved program to the Music Office prior to the recital date.


Room Reservations and Rentals

  • Vault Hours

    Vault Hours

    The Vault is normally open from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday. We cannot guarantee that we will actually be available during the hours posted because our duties frequently require that we be in another part of the building, somewhere else on campus, or away from campus. If we are not there when you come by, keep trying.

  • Locker Rentals

    Locker Rentals

    Lockers are available for rental in a variety of sizes by following these instructions:

    1. Fill out and submit the online form.
    2. Pay the rental fee of $10 per semester in person at the Vault. (Cash only)
    3. Your locker will be assigned at that time and you will be given the combination.

    Online Locker Rental Form

    The locker can be renewed on the same contract for sequential semesters, but a new contract must be signed for each school year.

    At the end of each semester, any lockers that have not been renewed are either emptied of their contents (those contents are stored in the Vault to be picked up by the person who signed the locker contract) or the lock will be changed until the fee is paid for the new semester.

    Drum Locker Rentals

    If you are a UNC Student, drum set is your primary instrument, and you are enrolled in drum set lessons, please use this form to rent a locker

    Drum Locker Rental Form

  • Instrument Rentals

    Instrument Rentals

    Instruments can be rented through the Vault for use by UNC students enrolled in music courses for classes and performances presented by the CPVA. Here is the procedure:

    1. Fill out and submit this online form.
    2. Pay the rental fee of $35 (CASH ONLY!) in person at the Vault. If a second instrument is rented in the same semester, the fee for that instrument is an additional $25. The fees for any instruments beyond those two will be waived.
    3. Your instrument will be assigned and you can pick it up at that time.

    Online instrument rental form

    For those enrolled in Methods Classes (strings, woodwinds, or brass), the single $35 fee will transfer from one instrument to the next as you change instruments through the semester; however, a separate contract and additional fee of $25 is required for students taking more than one Methods class in a semester.

    Rented instruments must be returned to the Vault by Wednesday of Finals Week each semester. A late fee of $5 per day will be assessed and charged to your student account for each calendar day after the due date. A Contract Extension may be requested if you need the instrument for a Final Exam on Thursday or Friday of Finals Week or if you need the instrument to play at the Commencement ceremony. Contracts will not be extended beyond the Monday following Finals Week and late fees will be assessed. If an instrument is not returned to the Vault within 30 days of its due date, the student will be charged the full replacement cost of the instrument as stated in the contract.

  • Online Room Request

    Online Room Request

    Rooms in Frasier Hall and Campus Commons may be requested for student use by completing an online request form. Requests are processed in the order they are received, usually on the following business day. Submitting a request does not reserve the room; you will receive a confirmation email with the room reservation if we are able to fulfill your request. 

    Any classroom that is normally used for music classes may be requested. Rooms in the Music Library are reserved through the Library. Practice rooms may not be reserved. Milne Auditorium can only be used by the School of Music for recitals and dress rehearsals. We do not have access to Milne before 4:30pm on weekdays because it is disruptive to classes in Kepner.

    *It is best to search by location for the room you would like to use. Frasier Hall rooms are designated as FRAS with a four digit room number, such as “0063" or “0249”.

  • Work Crew

    Work Crew

    The UNC Music Stage Crew consists of student employees who assist with equipment set-up for performances and dress rehearsals of the School of Music. Music Stage Crew is assigned to student recitals when the Recital Request form is received in our office. If you need any special equipment or special stage set-up for a performance, (e.g., harpsichord), make sure to communicate with the Vault Supervisor at least one month before the performance. If you are interested in working on the Music Stage Crew, contact the Vault Supervisor for an interview.

    A select set of keys can be checked out on a short-term basis (1-3 days) from the Music Office in Frasier 108.

    To request a key for long-term use, please fill out a Key Request Form. This form must be submitted by a faculty/staff member. Students will need to have their advisor submit a key request on their behalf.

Curricular Practical Training

Curricular Practical Training: UNC School of Music students routinely participate in paid and unpaid teaching and performance opportunities both on and off campus to develop as performers and educators during their degree programs. Although the expectation is not explicit in the catalog requirements, practical application and participation is an expected and necessary part of the curriculum for all School of Music students. Students are expected to work with their applied teacher and area faculty to evaluate the applicability of teaching or performance opportunities to their program of study.
