Creating Programs

Creating Your Printed Program

The Cali School of Music uses ProBuilder, a self-service online concert program creator to facilitate and streamline concert program design and production. We require the utilization of ProBuilder for all student and faculty recitals. Cali School staff will then print and provide these programs in time for your performance. You must submit your program at least two weeks prior to your recital to ensure that it is printed and delivered by the performance date.


Start Here: View this helpful video overview of ProBuilder before starting your first program.

  • If you need extra help, please refer to the step-by-step Recital Program Instructions.
  • Please download and refer closely to the Concert Program Style Guide so your program is accepted and printed. Programs that do not follow these conventions will be rejected until properly completed.
