Music Handbook: Recital Personnel

Both student and mixed recitals require a number of students besides the recitalists in order to be successful. Each role listed below indicates responsibilities and who to contact if you are interested in participating. Remember that we all depend on each other for our performances to be successful.


Ushers are responsible for working the audience side of a performance: handing out programs, monitoring audience seating, attending to doors, etc.

Students interested in serving as ushers should contact the current MENC president.

Stage Managers

Stage managers are responsible for working the performer side of a performance: facilitating smooth transitions between pieces, ensuring that the appropriate equipment is available for performers, etc.

Students interested in serving as stage managers should contact the music discipline.

Control Booth Operators

Control booth operators assist in lighting and sound for recitals, and record all concerts and other occasions as arranged. Students who serve in this capacity may receive compensation through work-study, and can receive training on the booth equipment.

Students interested in serving as a control booth operator should contact Christina Armendarez.
