RECITAL INFORMATION FOR TEACHERS
- Student recitals are open to any age or level of student of any branch member.
- Recitals may be divided into two segments depending on number of entries and level of participants, at the discretion of the Recitals Co-ordinator. Program details of individual recitals are notified after the entry deadline; teachers are responsible for communicating these with their families. Printed programs will not be available at the recital.
- All accompaniments should be live and acoustic.
- Memorization is encouraged but not required; teachers have discretion about this.
- Teachers or students requiring additional equipment (stools for small performers, e.g.) should bring it with them; a piano lamp will be provided.
- Teachers are responsible for all communication between their students and the Recitals Coordinator.
- The recital series is a co-operative opportunity for members and their students. Unless the Recitals Co-ordinator has agreed otherwise for exceptional reasons, teachers must be available to help supervise and are expected to remain until the end of the recital segment in which their students are participating. Duties of teachers (shared amongst participating teachers and assigned by the Recitals Co-ordinator) include setting up the venue, monitoring health protocols, greeting students and families, emceeing when printed programs are not available, altering the piano lid, and restoring the venue for church use.
- The piano is not available for students to play ahead of time unless prior arrangements have been made with the church office.
RECITAL ETIQUETTE AND HEALTH PROTOCOLS
Teachers are required to share and discuss expectations ahead of time with participating families, as follows:
- By submitting an entry form, teachers acknowledge that they, their students, and families and guests, have had access to the SRMTA Regina Branch health protocols and agree to comply with them.
- SRMTA Regina Branch aims to provide a performance environment which is as safe as possible. However, a no-risk environment is not possible, and all in attendance – performers, teachers, collaborative pianists, and audience alike – acknowledge by their attendance that they alone (or their guardians) undertake this risk voluntarily.
- Anyone with symptoms of illness should not attend the recital. Refunds for unexpected nonattendance are not available.
- Face masks are mandatory for everyone at the recital, except for performers at the time of performances only.
- Pianists must use hand sanitizer prior to using the piano keyboard. Teachers, please supervise very young students.
- SRMTA Regina Branch recitals are scent-free events.
- Venue doors will be locked just before the recital starts.
- Students should check in with the greeting teacher when they arrive.
- Seating must be in household bubbles, distanced from others by 2 metres. Young children must sit with a parent at all times. Several pews at the front of the sanctuary will not be used for seating, so as to provide a significant distance between performers and audience.
- One pew will be reserved for families wanting to videotape performances. Videotaping should be done discreetly and only of students who are members of that family.
- If people need to move out of their seats, it should be during applause only, not during performances.
- Flash photography is not permitted.
- Cell-phones should be silenced during recitals.
- Printed programs will not be available at the venue; program information will be emailed to teachers for distribution to families prior to the recital. Families may either print it off to bring with them, or use their phones to access the program.
- These recital protocols are specific to SRMTA Regina Branch and are subject to review as public health circumstances and restrictions change. Updates will be available as and when necessary.
