Juries and AFA Recitals

All students registered for music major lessons (MUSC 2150) must complete a jury examination during finals week of each semester. Jury signup sheets will be announced during Performance Hour.

This semester's juries will take place on-campus.

View the schedule below.

What is a jury?

Think of your jury as the final exam for your studio class. You will perform in front of

the college music faculty and be graded on your semester progress. Juries should be treated

as highly formal performances and good performance etiquette is encouraged!


A jury performance involves three elements:

  • Technical demonstration (generally consists of etudes and/or scales for instrumentalists, languages/diction for vocalists)

  • Sight-reading (excerpt provided by your studio instructor)

  • Performance of concert repertoire with professional-level accompaniment as required

Work with your studio instructor to prepare for jury and to view your graded jury forms.
