The Recording Studio

Situated above von Kuster Recital Hall, the recording studio provides audition, application, archival and reference recordings for both faculty members and students. The studio is capable of making high quality digital recordings from any of the wired rehearsal and performance spaces, including the main organ studio, von Kuster Hall and orchestral and vocal rehearsal spaces. In addition, the studio maintains a mobile component that records any off-site Faculty of Music performances in a high quality DVD format. See policy below.
