Symphony and Chorus formal attire requirements
Concert dress is formal and should reflect the serious nature of the music to be performed. Remember - people come to concerts to HEAR music, not SEE the latest fashion.
Please review the following requirements for each performing group. Students who fail to abide by the dress code will be asked to go home and change prior to the start of the concert.
