General Student Recitals
General Student Recitals, or GSRs, are a large part of the life of a Music Major here at Toccoa Falls College. Typically, each student performs in at least one GSR per semester, depending on the major or minor type. Generally, GSRs are Fridays at four o’clock, tend to be an hour long and take place four or five times throughout a semester. Family, friends, and TFC students are welcomed and encouraged to attend at no cost. Music students are required to attend.
The purpose of performing at these recitals is to give each student a chance to share what they have been working on and then receive helpful feedback on their performance from professors. In turn, this strengthens the students’ confidence, skills, and experience level as they perform live on stage with an audience. Students who attend have the opportunity to expand their listening repertoire as they are exposed to various styles and genres of music literature in several languages and through instrumental performances. Students are also encouraged to remember to do everything for God’s glory, not only during the performance but also in practicing and lessons that help prepare the student for a GSR. The ultimate goals of GSRs are to better the performer in a performance setting while expanding the student’s repertoire, all the while remembering first and foremost for Whom it is done and why.
