Frequently Asked Questions

How do I insure that my performance/presentation is recorded?

All performances/presentations held in Hughes Auditorium are automatically recorded. For those taking place elsewhere, contact Mark Rubinstein at least TWO WEEKS prior to the event.

For student recitals, students should refer to the Audio Recording Services information in their recital packet.

How do I get a copy of a recording?

If you are the recitalist or a soloist on a program, you will be provided a link to download an electronic copy of the performance in mp3 format, usually within 3 days of the performance. You may also request a CD by emailing Mark Rubinstein. An additional fee may apply.

How can I arrange a video recording of a performance?

Audio Recording Services does not provide video services. The School of Music Production Crew regularly records or livestreams large-ensemble performances held in Hughes Hall at the discretion of the director, as well as faculty/guest artist recitals, upon request. Upon review of overall quality, some of these videos are uploaded to the School of Music YouTube channel. Faculty may contact Tim Donel, production manager, for more information.

Student recitals are not video recorded.

If video needs beyond those mentioned above are needed, contact Tim Donel, production manager or Tamara Morris, School of Music communications. They can assist with securing services from university resources.
