How to list the program info…. See sample programs for more details.
1. List complete published composition titles, with opus numbers, thematic index numbers (e.g.,
K. 595), dates of the composition or premiers if relevant to the performance, etc.
2. List complete names of composers to the right of the piece: First name, Middle initial, Last name.
Any movements or additional works by that composer are listed on the next lines. You do not re-list
the composer’s name if playing several different selections by that person as a set. (See vocal
program.) Ask your private teacher if any questions.
3. Research composer birth-death dates via a reputable database (NOT Wikipedia). It is appropriate
to write “b. 1956” for a living composer rather than “1901- ?” as if waiting for him to die so that
you can fill in the blank. If you are the composer, list your birth year: b. 1997 below your name.
4. Below the composer’s name, list the names of editors, arrangers, etc. (“arr. by Jay Bocook,” “trans.
by W. Stokowski,” etc.)
5. List movements if the piece has movements, or segments. Sometimes it is better to give several,
or even all, of the tempo indications that occur in a movement, with the indications set off from each
other by hyphens (column 1: Allegro-Presto). Never number movements unless they are definitely
part of the movement title (column 2 and 3). If not clear based on the printed music, research how
the works are listed on published CDs, iTunes, etc. Verify with your teacher.
Adagio I. Dulce 1. Sky
Allegro-Presto II. Gavotte 2. Water’s Edge
6. Program Notes are normally expected of vocalists and not expected of instrumentalists,
unless requested by your teacher. The music office prepares and prints your notes. Research
carefully, ask your teacher to proof read, then email the notes to Emily Sweezey. See the Music
Handbook for additional guidelines. Only office-prepared materials may be distributed at a
department recital / ensemble event.
