Concert Production Guidelines

There are various types of Concerts that the Department of Music supports: Class Concerts, Faculty Concerts, Guest Concerts and Degree Required Concerts.

Concerts that are supported by the Department receive program, electronic flyer, inclusion in the “This Week in Music” email, and on our online Department of Music web site “Events” calendar. When producing your own concert, it is your responsibility to create your program and flyer.

You will need to submit these as a PDF and JPEG to the department via the intranet link:

  • Concert Program Submission Form
  • Digital Signage Submission Form

The Department of Music records audio for all degree required concerts, most class concerts, faculty concerts and visiting artist’s concerts depending on artist’s permissions. Copies of concert recordings are available for concert participants five days following the concert. See Dubbing Policy Page.

For Degree Required Concerts, you will need to submit a Recital Application in the Spring Quarter of the previous year. The form is available in the intranet form section.

  • Supported concerts are granted: venue access on the day of the concert, 10 hours of technical staff support (tech, rehearsal and performance), audio archive recording (performance only), program assistance, concert calendar placement and digital media promotions. 
  • Self-supported concerts are granted: venue access (only).

Listed below are the steps to assist you in the preparation and presentation of your concert. Please understand that this timeline is set up to guarantee that your concert needs will be met. If you are unable to provide information within this timeline, the Department of Music cannot guarantee that all your requests will be met.

4 WEEKS PRIOR TO THE EVENT:

  • Schedule a meeting with the Production Manager, to review your concert logistics. This will include:
    • Your technical, budgetary and any special requests that are required for your concert, this includes a Stage Diagram. (It may be determined that you will need to submit a request for Departmental Resources, if your concert falls outside the scope of the usual concert support).
    • Piano/harpsichord tunings are scheduled
    • Set schedule and crew requirements for the concert day.

 

2 WEEKS PRIOR TO THE EVENT:

CPMC 122 Policy

DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC SECURITY RULES AND REGULATIONS

Revised: 9/8/2015 TFH; 8/9/21 jcf

CPMC 122, aka the “Experimental Theater” is a research space with performance and advanced audio and theatrical capabilities. The room is heavily used and makes use of both simple (“lecture” ) and complex (“production”) audio visual configurations. While the room is checked regularly to ensure these systems function as designed, review and repair can be days or weeks between uses. So, it is up to the users to return uphold the etiquette of the space. This policy is written with this in mind and revised quarterly.

  1.  Room access is limited to supported events, approved self-supported events and approved labs. The Facilities Manager will review requests for exceptions to the room access policy. 
  2.  Equipment housed in the room is NEVER to leave without prior approval of the Facilities Manager. There will be no exceptions to this rule. Any missing equipment will be immediately reported stolen to campus and local police. It is the responsibility of room users to report any equipment security violations immediately to the Facilities Manager. In the case that none of the above can be reached, it is the responsibility of the student to report missing equipment to campus and local police.
  3.  Those responsible for violations of room policy (especially those that endanger the security of the room’s holdings or other users' work) will be asked to retake the facilities orientation and may be subject to suspension or cancellation of room privileges.
  4.  Keycard Access: Faculty and students with approved access may request keycard access from the Facilities Manager through the Department Intranet. Keycard access is not required during scheduled courses or self-supported events. Participation in the CPMC 122 Facility orientation is required before keycards will be activate.

Request For Dept Support 2010

Request for Department Support

Updated July 2010

The Department of Music supports and encourages Outreach and Off-Campus concerts and events by the Faculty and Graduate students. The scope of these events varies widely, and in most cases has little impact on Scheduled Departmental Events. However, the following issues must be noted when any Departmental Resources are used off Campus for any reason.

  • University Policy requires that the individual using the resource notify the Department in writing of the resources being used at least 2 weeks prior to the use. This time is needed to process insurance forms (if required) and for confirmation that conflicts with Departmental resources or scheduled events do not exist. If notification is not acknowledged in writing within the prescribed timeframe, the individual assumes personal responsibility for any theft or damage to the equipment, instruments, or department resources used.

Warren Grad Offices Agreement 2014

Facilities Guidelines

Warren Graduate Student Offices/Practice Rooms

The following is a partial list of basic office and facility use guidelines that have been set by the University and the Department of Music. The intention of these guidelines is to provide a safe and healthy atmosphere for all graduate students. For a complete list of university rules, please visit the UCSD home page (http://adminrecords.ucsd.edu/ppm/index.html) to view the University Policy and Procedure Manual.

  1.  Only currently enrolled Graduate students may use the Warren/Music Graduate Offices. No friends or relatives. This is a working space and needs to be available for ALL Graduate students.

  2.  No living in the Warren Graduate Offices/Practice Rooms. EH&S Health and Safety codes do not permit offices to be used as housing. Anyone suspected of living in a office/practice room runs the risk of losing office privileges.

  3.  There should not be consumption of Alcoholic beverages in the office spaces. This is a working only space.

  4.  Pets are not allowed inside any Warren space, which includes the offices/practice rooms. Pets outside on university property are required to be on a leash at all times.

  5.  There can be no smoking inside any university building. There is a no smoking policy in effect at UC San Diego.

  6.  You may not alter or add anything to the inside or outside of any university space; this includes the lockers. Anything found in violation will be removed and discarded.

  7.  All materials and personal effects must be kept inside lockers or your individual desk, not on patios or in common use spaces. Anything left out will be assumed trash and will be thrown out.

  8.  The offices, practice rooms, and desks must be returned, at the end of your usage, to the condition it was in when you received it. Repairs that have to be done beyond normal wear and tear will be charged to the individual responsible.

  9.  Please clean up after yourself. Any materials left out will be presumed trash and will be thrown away.

  10.  Respect your neighbors, faculty and staff who also work in the building.

  11.  Never share your keys or access codes. Repeated offenses will result in loss of access privileges.

  12.  Because entry to the office cluster by university workers is on a need-to-do basis, please help to self monitor your office space and report anything that seems abnormal. Examples: electrical problems, fire extinguishers needing recharge, plumbing leaks. Report these to the Facilities Manager or Assistant Facilities Manager as soon as possible.

  13.  There is a dumpster provided for your use located Southeast side of the building in parking lot #508. Place larger and heavy items to be thrown away in the dumpster. The smaller waste cans around the building cannot hold heavy items because the trash liners break when removing them.
