Recital Management

Recital, performance, or showcase, whatever name you select to display your student's accomplishments, Jackrabbit's Recital Management feature helps you create and manage everything for a well-planned seamless program!

  • Create recital programs, cue sheets, and sign in/out sheets for your recital.
  • Create and modify your recital using the easy drag/drop functionality for order performance.
  • Assign music to each performance.
  • Manage gaps between performances to ensure time for costume changes.
  • Track the duration of each performance.

The feature (module) name defaults to Recitals, however, if you would like to change it to another name, go to the Gear (icon) > Settings >  General > Organization Defaults (left menu) > Recital Module Settings and enter the preferred name. The name you enter will be reflected throughout Jackrabbit.

Follow these steps to set up, plan, and manage your recital. 

Step 1 - Create a New Recital

Go to the Events (menu) > Recitals and click the Create New Recitals button. Enter the New Recitals Name and Date, and click Save.

Once the recital is created, click on the Recital Name to open the Recitals Editor and move to the next step.

Step 2 - Add Performances

Once you have created a recital, use the Recital Editor to do the following:

  • Add performances with song selections to the recital.
  • Define the length of the performance and add additional notes.
Step 3 - Add Classes/Students to a Performance

Assign classes to the performance:

  • Add as many classes as needed from the Select a Class section.
  • Selected classes list all the students; you can uncheck the students who will not participate.
  • Use the Refresh Rosters button to sync class additions, drops, etc. 
  • Add a performance conflict gap to accommodate time for costume changes. Be sure to Save changes and Refresh Conflicts.
  • Drag/drop performances to change the order of the performances.
Step 4 - Manage Your Recital

Use Jackrabbit reports to manage your recital:

  • Create a recital program and cue sheets by clicking Print Detail or Export Word - Recital Program. This will ensure that all the students' names will be spelled correctly! You can also export student details to Excel and use the file to sort, filter and import into a mail merge program to email families. Refer to Work with Recital Programs for more details.
  • Click Create Check In/Out Sheet to keep track of students' arrivals and departures. Refer to Recital Check In/Out Sheet for more details.
  • Click Print Family Detail to summarize all the performances each student is participating in, grouped by family.
  • Use the Multi-Recitals Family Detail report on the Recital Listings page to provide you with a list of families who have different performance/recital dates. This helps parents keep track of their children's recital schedules.

Email students in the recital as needed:

  • Go to the Families (menu) > Email/Text Families and create an email message for the recital.
  • Select the Search Criteria to select the classes participating in the recital.
  • Preview the email list and uncheck students not included in the recital.

Refer to Email Families for additional details.
