Concert Attire

2020-21 School Year:

We will be wearing jeans and the official 2020-21 orchestra t-shirt. The t-shirt can be purchased from the spirit wear link on our homepage.



Students who still have their uniform from last year need to have those dry-cleaned. Please plan to return these to school once we are able to resume face-to-face instruction.

Our Standard Concert Uniforms

Concert attire for orchestra performances is tuxedo for boys, and full length gowns for girls.  There will be performance opportunities where an alternate dress code may be necessary.  We will communicate an alternate dress code in advance.  Rule of thumb...concerts are performed in tux and gown.

What will we provide:
Ladies:
     Gown

Gentlemen:
    Jacket
    Pants
    Tie
    Cummerbund

It is Parent/Student responsibility to care for and maintain it throughout the year.  


CARE OF UNIFORMS

 After each performance, take the tux or gown to the dry cleaners for cleaning.  

DO NOT WASH OR TUMBLE DRY THE GOWN.

Any student who does not return the gown or tux by an announced date at the end of the year will have an “unclear record” form submitted to the office and will be unable to register for the next semester until this obligation is met.

 

PARENTS:  Please be cautious when performing “home repairs” to hems, cuffs, sleeves, seams, etc. We do not get district money to repair damaged uniforms.

 

WHAT YOU ARE EXPECTED TO PROVIDE:

Black concert shoes, preferably with a closed toe.  
Black socks for the men.
Guys...will need to provide their own wing-tip collared shirt (just say no to french cuff).  You can purchase these shirts from numerous sources.  See below for a picture example of what students need:

Accessories:
For tuxedo shirts...not studs or cuff links are necessary. 

Jewelry, while nice, is not appropriate for concert performances.  Only stud earrings or jewelry that is director approved will be allowed on stage.  Hair bows or accessories should be completely black.  We want the focus to be on the "string" and not on the "bling!"
