Guest Artist Information

General Information

Guest artist appearances, including performances, clinics and master classes, seminars, workshops and symposiums must have departmental approval and chair signature before being submitted to the Public Events Office. The Public Events Office will consider these requests on a space/time available basis. The Moore Musical Arts Center facilities may not be committed without prior approval by the Public Events Office.  

The College prefers to not schedule events conflicting with each other on the same day, with the exception of student recitals.
