How do I book a recital?

- Make sure you are enrolled in the correct section of your applied lesson.  Please check with your teacher.

- If you are giving a senior or graduate recital, please be sure to enroll on My Akron.  If you are giving a junior recital, you do not need to sign up on My Akron. 

-Pick a date that gives you enough time to prepare and your teacher and accompanist are available for.

- Request the date on 4-D:  

  1. Launch 4-D “schedule view.” 
  2. Check the date and time on the schedule to be sure it is available.
  3. Request room.
  4. Select “Recital or any recorded event.”
  5. Fill out all sections of the screen.
  6. Check for conflicts.  Click the "check conflict" button and also check for pending recitals.

- Your date is still not confirmed.  Take the recital form (located under the computer) and fill out all fields. Get all signatures (teacher, area chair, your accompanist and yourself).  Return to Patty LaNasa within 14 days of the request along with $50 (cash or check to The University of Akron).

- Once Patty LaNasa receives your check and confirms your date, your recital is confirmed.

- If you want to use the Atrium for a reception, please make sure to book with Patty. 

- Book tables for your reception with Kim Bradfield in the Band Office (GH 119).  $4 per table.

- If your recital is not confirmed within 14 days of the request, it is “denied” and you need to start the procedure over.

- To schedule rehearsals, follow the same procedure on 4-D but select “room, class or rehearsal.”  It is not necessary to schedule rehearsals along with the recitals, but wise to schedule as soon as possible.  Dates fill up quickly.   

- Cancellations: 

  1. If you cancel your recital, your deposit will not be refunded.  You need to start the procedure over. 
  2. If your teacher says you are not ready to give your recital and they cancel your recital, your deposit will not be refunded.  You need to start over. 
  3. If your teacher cancels your recital because they have a conflict or in case of emergency, your deposit will be refunded on a case-by-case basis.
