Ensemble Equipment Request
Thornton faculty, staff, TAs, and ensemble managers may request the movement of production-related equipment (including percussion items) for Thornton-related events. These events can include concerts, workshops, and master classes; equipment is subject to availability.

Procedure Details:
It is the responsibility of the ensemble manager or official ensemble representative to secure approval for all items moved from genre instructors and/or department heads. If unique instruments need to be moved, approval must be obtained from the genre-specific instructor: Harp, JoAnn Turovsky; Percussion, Joe Pereira and/or Jim Babor; Early Music, Adam Gilbert; etc. Please consult the Production Office to find out whose approval is needed for your instrument/equipment move request.

If items are to be prepared for professional movers (ie., Musicians Transfer), it is the responsibility of each musician or ensemble representative to help assemble items for pick-up. Upon return, the responsibility continues and help is required to return items to their final destination after mover drop-off. A time and location for these arrangements will be designated by the Production Manager.

Recital Recordings:
All recording engineers must be listed on the official Approved Recording Engineer List (PDF) in order to record any recital or concert. For more information, please contact the Production Office.

Engineers interested in applying for authorized status should fill out the Recording Engineer Application (PDF), sign the guidelines and submit to the Production Office for review.
