The ICOM Friday Performance is a weekly live concert program that prepares music students in the Foundation in Music program to perform before a live audience comprising faculty, staff, parents, students, professional musicians and visitors alike. Each student must feature a 10-minute music performance once in each semester and may feature either a cover tune or an original composition performed in a range of settings from solo, duet, trio or large ensemble performance.

The members of the audience assess the students on three areas:
1) vocal / instrumental proficiency;
2) musicianship; and
3) stage presentation through the casting of ballots, which result in a weekly "winner" with the highest scores.

The winners of each week's performance then compete in the "Final Friday Performance" on the last week of classes to vie for the "Best Student Performer of the Semester" trophy awarded by the Head of Performance. The award not only boosts the winning student's recognition for musical prowess but also nurtures a healthy competition among students to push the boundaries of music performance in order to clinch the coveted award. In addition to musicians, live sound engineers and stage crew also hone their skills each week in assigned roles and functions related to live sound. Students helm roles such as live sound engineer, recording engineer, stage manager, stage crew, lighting engineer, videographer, photographer, and editor. Some of these tasks are directly related to course grades and a large majority of alumni have attributed the Friday Performance as being fundamental to their musical and technical growth.
