Setting the Stage Credit
All Bachelor of Music students as well as Master of Music and Professional Studies candidates in Accompanying, Contemporary Performance, Orchestral Performance, and Orchestral Conducting are required to attend five Setting the Stage events by the time they graduate.
To receive credit for attending an on-campus workshop, students need to attend more than half of the event and also be present at the end of the session to have their MSM ID scanned.
Off-Campus & Webinar Opportunities
In addition to on-campus events, credit is available for attending select off-campus professional development events, especially through Chamber Music America, Fractured Atlas, the Foundation Center, Opera America, and other service organizations. After identifying a potential event, contact the CME at least three days before the event for approval and details about simple requirements to receive credit; they will be similar to the webinar requirements outlined below.
Students graduating this semester who are unable to attend enough live events to fulfill the requirement can take advantage of web-based opportunities available through:
Chamber Music America
New York Foundation for the Arts
Polyphonic (webinars presented by MSM faculty are not eligible)
To receive credit students will need to use the links above to view webinars of at least 50 minutes in length and then complete this form after each webinar viewed: http://bit.ly/STS-WebinarReport. Friday, December 8, 2015 is the last day to submit write-ups to receive credit for December 2015 graduates.
