Fall 2020 Jury Policy

In accordance with health and safety guidelines as well as university protocols for end-of-term remote instruction and online final exams, the Department of Music will administer Juries for Fall 2020 in a remote format.

 Fall Juries will be video recorded and submitted electronically by December 5, 2020.

  1. Jury content/repertoire is at the discretion of the instructor in consultation with the student.
  2. Accompaniment is encouraged but not required.
    1. Students may use a pre-recorded accompaniment (karaoke-style).
    2. Students may use a live accompanist.
      1. Masking and distancing requirements must still be observed.
      2. Be aware that the campus closes on November 20 for the remainder of the semester. Thus, Roberts Hall facilities and equipment are not available for use after this date.
