The Pinning Ceremony begins at 7:45am – 8:00am in the Orchestra Section of the New York City Center and it is only for May 2022 Baccalaureate Candidates for graduation.  It will consist of Dr. Selena Gilles speaking about the tradition of pinning for 3-5 minutes and then the Candidates and Pinners will be asked to stand at their seats to be pinned.  Once completed, candidates will be directed into the holding room, and pinners can either wait in the Grand Tier Lobby or go outside and return at 8:45am when doors open to the public.
