Since audience members see us first, our concert attire sets an impression of us prior to the very first note. That impression should be of a polished and uniform group, ready to provide an evening of superb music. What we wear should visually frame our achievements as a choral ensemble rather than as individuals, so we’ve established clothing guidelines for creating that frame.
MEN‘S Concert Dress Guidelines
Spread collar shirt (not an oxford or traditional tux shirt)
Straight black tie
WOMEN'S Concert Dress Guidelines
Formal, solid colored black dress, skirt and top, or dress pants and top
Dresses or skirts are tea or floor-length. A short slit (<6”) is acceptable.
Tops have elbow-length or longer sleeves and should have concert-appropriate necklines. No cropped tops.
Pants are full-length dress pants. No cropped pants, black jeans or leggings.
Black dress shoes
Jewelry is optional but encouraged.
