If you were not able to attend the meeting or misplaced some of the items given out at the meeting, please see below for the information/PDFs.Uniforms
Our Fall Concert is on October 17. The turn-around time for the uniform could take 4-6 weeks so it is recommended to order the uniform as soon as possible so that you will have time to make any alterations before the first concert on October 17. All students have a “Uniform Assignment” which will entail them wearing their full uniform with black shoes and holding their instrument in their correct playing posture. Please help them take their photo (on their device will work fine) and they should bring it to class for their uniform assignment. Hair should be pulled away from the face. Returning orchestra students should check the status of their uniform to ensure that they have located all parts of their uniform and to ensure that their uniform still fits. Information on How to Order the uniform (and specific parts) can be found below. Once your uniform arrives, please have your student try it on and move in it as though they are playing their instrument. It may need to be adjusted/hemmed by a tailor.
Shoes/Undergarments: All students should wear appropriate black undergarments under their uniform. Black, closed toed dress shoes and socks are the standard uniform. Black, close toed flats are recommended for the ladies.

2020 Chicago Trip
We are planning on going to Chicago on March 18-22, 2020. The first group of students to sign up and make eligible payments will be placed on the roster for the Chicago Trip. Priority will be given by seniority and timeliness of payments. After the first bus is filled, the next group of students will be placed on a waiting list until we have enough for a second bus. In the event that the second bus fills, we will place the next group of students on a waiting list. In the event that the second bus does not fill and there is not an available spot on the trip for your student, your check/payment will be returned.
