Concert Attire

How the orchestra appears to the audience is an important part of the presentation. We ask that each student comes to concerts dressed appropriately and be uniformed with the rest of the orchestra.

All Orchestras:

Bottom – Solid long black pants/trousers/slacks (full length, must come down to ankles, no leggings or yoga pants) or skirt (must come below knees, with black tights). SOLID black socks (no logos) or tights (Sheer is ok, no patterns). Belt must also be solid black

Shoes – Solid black dress shows or low heels/flats, must be close toed (no sneakers)

Top- Solid White 3/4 or long sleeve dress shirts or collared shirts (No tank tops or short sleeves/ T-shirts)

*We will also accept donations of gently-used concert attire that students are no longer wearing. These items will be washed, stored, and given to students who may need it. Please send them to Ms Kong with your student. We also have a swap at the beginning of the school year.
