Stage management—FAQ

Will I have a stage manager at my recital?

All supported recitals in the Imig Music Building have a stage manager present. The stage manager will arrive at the performance hall one hour prior to your performance to prepare; the stage manager will unlock the green room, set and change the stage, change the lights, and open and close the doors to the hall. 

Complete the Staging Information form at least 4 weeks prior to your event (return the form to S213).

Can I have a reception after my recital?

Yes. S101, the Grusin lobby and the Tile Lounge are available for scheduling a reception. Please reserve the space of your choice with the scheduling assistant when reserving your recital time.

Can my stage manager turn pages for me?

No, during your performance the stage manager has responsibilities both backstage and in the house that prevent them from being onstage during your performance. Please have someone else available to turn pages, operate audio or video playback, etc.

Recital recording—FAQ

How do I schedule my recital?

How much does the recording cost?

A $100 charge covers the time for the stage manager, recording technician and livestream operator. After the performance you will receive links to download both the audio and video recordings, and the audio recording will be archived in our music library. Extensive sound reinforcement or anything requiring additional crew personnel will be billed at an additional $20 per hour. If you have additional support needs, please contact Kevin Harbison as far in advance as possible.

When do I get my copies?

Most audio and video recordings are ready within a week of your performance. You will receive an email with links to download the files.
