Concert Chorus and Choir News
As in the past the music department has established formal dress attire for all of the performing organizations at the High School level. It has been seen in the past that the way a concert group presents itself has a profound impact on the performers mind-set during concerts. Our goal is to have a uniform and professional look for all of the High School performing ensembles. The following attire is our required for Concert Choir and Concert Chorus.
- Men - Black Dress slacks, Black socks and Shoes, White Tux shirts, Black vest (supplied by the department) and bow tie
- Women - Long Black skirt or Palazzo Pants (long), comfortable, low heeled shoe (better and safer on risers), White long sleeved blouse that can be tucked in (you may order a tux shirt if you wish)
This year we have looked at several local vendors for help in meeting this goal, as we understand that all students do not own a long black skirt or slacks, white blouse or tux shirt, cummerbund and bow tie. We were unable to find any local vendors offering reasonable prices for skirts. We have looke into the company, Formal Fashions, a mail order company for formal concert attire from Arizona. All of the clothing is machine washable, can be hemmed to the correct length with a rolled hem on a sewing machine. The skirts styles we found to look the best are Palazzo Pants and an A-line skirt with an attached satin sash. Dress black slacks for the men in either vocal ensemble may purchased at any department store at this time.
Your child will be bringing letter and order form home during the first month of school. We will also make arrangements to take measurements, collect orders and fees during a rehearsal time at the beginning of the year.
