For every serious student of music at Manhattan School of Music, attending concerts is a vital and important part of the total educational experience.
School concert attendance is the great opportunity to hear music brought to life by the entire community as well as distinguished visiting artists.
Students registered for CA1000 are required to attend 7 major concerts and/or master classes per semester. Performance in any portion of an approved concert does not count toward fulfilling the Concert Attendance requirement.
To receive credit, students must scan IN and OUT at the beginning and end of each eligible concert.
The Office of the Registrar registers every student for Concert Attendance each successive semester until the requirement is fulfilled. A student who has no intention of meeting the requirement in any given semester must petition to drop it from his or her schedule that semester; otherwise a grade of F will result and remain on the student’s transcript even after the requirement is fulfilled. Since no credit is attached to Concert Attendance, such failures will not affect the student’s Grade Point Average.
Required for 6 semesters (out of 8); must register for Concert Attendance first semester enrolled and each subsequent semester until requirement is fulfilled. The requirement for transfer students is prorated; please consult the Office of the Registrar for more information.
Required for 2 semesters (out of 4) for MM/PG students; Required for one semester for PS students; must register for concert attendance first semester enrolled and each subsequent semester until requirement is fulfilled.
In addition to attending concerts, all Bachelor of Music students in the classical and jazz programs as well as Master of Music and Professional Studies candidates in Accompanying, Contemporary Performance, Orchestral Performance, and Orchestral Conducting have a Setting the Stage requirement. These students are required to attend five Setting the Stage career workshops by the time they graduate. These workshops are hosted by the Center for Music Entrepreneurship (CME) throughout the school year. To receive credit for attending, students need to have their MSM ID scanned at the end of an event. Additional details about this semester’s workshops can be found by clicking here.
