The Department faculty, in recognition of excellence in performance and significant contributions as a performer, may select one or more Seniors (majors or non-majors) for the designation “Honors in Music Performance” at the end of each academic year.

Based on the faculty’s combined knowledge of the variety of ways in which student performers may excel, consideration will be given for their activities in solo and joint recitals, other solo performances, concertos, chamber music, accompanying, conducting and, as appropriate, participation in one or more performing organizations. Generally some combination of these performance opportunities will be considered.

A certificate and designation in the Honors Convocation and Commencement programs will be awarded to those selected. No student applications are necessary.
