Performance Attire Information

  • PERFORMANCE DRESS

    It is extremely important that students follow the performance dress guidelines EXACTLY. Our goal is to look professional, mature, elegant, and to MATCH.

     

    CHAMBER: We wear choir robes. These robes will be assigned to students at the beginning of the year. THEY SHOULD REMAIN AT SCHOOL, except for certain circumstances (trips, etc) where students will take them and be responsible for them. If you lose your choir robe, it is a $140 fee to replace it.

     

    What to wear with your choir robe: BLACK tights/pantyhose/dress pants, black socks, black flat closed-toe DRESS shoes. No sneakers or printed shoes. No heels. No shirts with collars – we should not see your shirt under your robe. No flashy jewelry, perfume or cologne (but please DO wear deodorant!). Perfume and cologne is very hard on some people when singing – lots of allergies. Please do not wear it.

     

    WOMEN’S: Women’s Choir wears black dresses owned by the school. You will be fitted for a dress in the first few weeks of school. Once you have your dress, you should take it home. You may need to hem the dress. You can sew it or use hemming tape. Please don’t ruin it by letting it drag on the ground if it’s too long! Launder as directed – wash cold, hang dry.

     

    What to wear with your dress: BLACK tights/pantyhose, and black, flat, closed-toe DRESS shoes. No sneakers, sandals, heels, or Toms. No flashy jewelry, perfume or cologne (but please DO wear deodorant!). Perfume and cologne is very hard on some people when singing – lots of allergies. Please do not wear it.

     

    If you do not return your dress at the end of the year, there is a $70 replacement fee.

At concerts, we will hand out red sashes (sort of like a belt) which we wear with the dresses. Launder as directed – wash cold, hang dry.

You must return the school-owned items at the end of the year, or you will be charged for them.
