Concert Wear

Dear band Family,    As you know our students have their first concert of the year next week. Concert wear for new students and students that have out grown theirs has gone home the last few weeks. Please have your student try them on to make sure everything fits well.

Girls have one piece:  Dress
They should have already tried them on so we could make any changes. We had the students try on everything when we measured so the sizes should be correct, but we can mistakes and kids grow 🙂 You will need black shoes to wear with the dress. It doesn’t matter if they are heels or flats, as long as they are black. Sometimes, you can avoid hemming a dress just by wearing heels.

You may need to hem your dress, or adjust the length as you grow (NOTE: some of the newer dresses are exceedingly long. It’s okay to cut off some of the fabric). It is your responsibility to alter length on Concert Wear (per the Band Handbook), and students keep it home for the length of their time as students at Henry Clay, including summers (trading out pieces if they outgrow them).  When you graduate or stop participating in band, please dry clean items and return to the band room. We do not have room to store student’s concert wear in the band room. If you outgrow any part, contact a uniform committee member for refitting.     Dry Clean only.

Boys have 5 pieces: Coat, shirt, pants, tie, cummerbund. Keep track of your tie & cummerbund–replacements will be $5 each and can only be obtained by contacting Mrs. Moore, Mrs. Martin or Mrs. Stepter
