Concert Programs for Student, Faculty & Guest Recitals

In order to have your program printed and archived by the Concerts & Events office, the program files must be submitted via the below submission link at least ten (10) days before your recital date.

If you do not submit your program by the deadline, you are responsible for printing your program and/or submitting it to the SMTD website for inclusion on your own.

Creating Your Program

Your programs must meet the guidelines as laid out in the Style Guide linked here.

To facilitate this process, we are providing a Microsoft Word template for you to use to create your programs. Please do not change any formatting on this document, including fonts, colors, sizes, and logo size or placement.

Please verify the accuracy of your information before submitting; this includes the correct spelling of composer’s names and works, correct movements, and the like. Your program will be printed as submitted, and all errors will be included.


Submitting Your Program (before the deadline)

To submit your completed program to the Concerts & Events team before the deadline, email it to [email protected] or click the button below.

Submitting after the deadline? Skip to “After the Deadline” below.

Please submit your program as a .docx file. 

Submit Your Program

Concert program submissions must be made at least 10 (ten) days before the performance date. Submissions after the deadline will NOT be handled by the Concerts & Events office.

Students will receive 50 printed programs for their recitals. Faculty and Guest artists should indicate the number of programs desired. When able, we will provide courtesy emails to notify requesters that their programs have been delivered. During the busy concert season this might not be possible- requesters should periodically check for their programs at the pick up location.

  • Please note: We are not liable for unexpected delays in the printing department. Please submit your program as early as possible.

After the Deadline

If your program is completed after the deadline, you are responsible for printing and picking up your program, as well as submitting your program for inclusion on the website.

Printing Your Program

Printed copies of your program are optional. If you choose to print copies of your program after the deadline, please note that SMTD is not responsible for any costs incurred. We will not be able to provide a shortcode for your use.

We recommend using one of the following vendors:

What to Request from the Printer

Tell the printer the following information:

  • 50 black & white copies of an 5.5×8.5 document printed 2-up on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper, double-sided if necessary (based on page count).
    Stock (paper): 60# text 7027 Cream.
    Hand cut in half, for a total count of 50 documents.
    Set a pick up deadline that allows you enough time to pick the printed copies up before your performance.

Submitting Your Program For the Website & Archive

To submit your program to be included on the event page on the SMTD website and in the SMTD archive, please upload a PDF of your program to the “Submit Your Program for the Website/Archive” form, along with your name and recital date. Please name your pdf with your name and recital date as well. PDF programs must be submitted no later than noon on the day before your recital, or before noon on the Friday before your recital if your recital falls on a weekend. We cannot guarantee that programs submitted after this deadline will be published on the website in advance of the concert.
