They must also wear black dress shoes with black socks (marching shoes may be worn if necessary).  For girls, all hems/slits must be below the knee and all shoulders must be covered.   You may wear black leggings if the skirt is above the knees. Symphonic Band & Wind Ensemble students will wear their formal attire (tuxedo/dresses).

Your support means a great deal to the students.  We look forward to sharing some great music with you!

P.S. Although it is a “school night,” students and parents are highly encouraged to stay until the conclusion of the program.  Each ensemble is terrific and the refreshments and the comradeship among the students enjoyed after the concert is so enjoyable!
