It is time to start thinking about our concert dress for all of our concerts. During our concerts, the boys wear tuxedos and the girls wear black dresses.
We ask that all female band members provide their own solid black outfit (Concert Black). Ladies may choose to use their own black dress, pantsuit, or skirt. The skirt/dress must cover below the knee when sitting. All apparel must be solid black. The blouse/dress must cover the midsection and not have a low neckline.
Concert tuxes (the black jacket) are provided to all male band members for Concert season. We ask that all male members provide their own tuxedo shirt, black bow tie, and black dress shoes (marching shoes may be used). Instead of a concert tux, male percussionists wear Concert Black for the concert season, which includes black shirt and black pants.
Most of our new members may not have these required items and will need to purchase them before the concert on December 18th. However once you have purchased them, you will not need to purchase them again in the future (unless students misplace or grow out of them)
Many of our returning students already have these items. We have asked that all students please begin looking in their closets for these items and to not wait until the last minute only to realize they do not have the necessary items they need for the day before the concert. So we are asking all the parents to please ask your son or daughter to find and show you the items they will need before the concert on the 18th. This way if they do not have these items or they have grown, it will give you plenty of time to purchase a replacement. To help you, we have provided a list of the items they need below.
Black Footwear (NO HIGH HEELS)
Black hose or leggings
Black skirt/dress/slacks (MUST be below the knee)
Black blouse/dress (MUST cover midsection and no low neckline)
