Performances are formal occasions. In order to eliminate the focus on individual student fashion and shift the focus to the music being presented by the students all instrumental music students must purchase and wear uniform concert attire. This policy will ensure that all students have equal access to high-quality, appropriate, concert attire.
Option 1: Pants, Vest, Shirt, Tie (purchased through SCH). Black dress shoes and black dress socks (provided by student).
Option 2: Dress (purchased through SCH). Skin-tone hose and black dressy closed-toe shoes (provided by students)
This dress code will be enforced for all public band/orchestra/jazz ensemble performances. Students who are not appropriately dressed will not be allowed to perform. Questions regarding the dress code should be handled well in advance of the performance.
Concert attire for students who receive free meals will be free. Concert attire for students who receive reduced-price meals will be reduced by 25%. If this dress code presents a hardship, please contact Mr. Stevenson at your earliest convenience. We gladly accept donations of outgrown or no-longer-needed items from the above list.
Students who are no longer in the program or have outgrown their concert attire are encouraged to resell their gently used attire to those who may need attire. Sellers may set a desired price and will be given space in the band room to advertise. Buyers and sellers should communicate directly with each other.
