Rentals & Rent-to-Own

Please rent an instrument (DO NOT BUY ONE). Many companies will paint instruments fun colors to market & attract students. These instruments tend to be low-quality & break easily.

What to Wear

When deciding what to wear to a concert, we say "Concert Black."

Girls

  • Plain white dress shirt with plain white garment under OR black dress shirt (sleeves or sleeveless). Cut of shirt cannot be low in front or back.

  • Black skirts may be worn & must reach down to mid-calf or lower OR black dress slacks. NO skin-tight options or jeans.

  • A long black dress is another option.

  • Black stockings - legs, ankles & feet covered, with black dress shoes (flat or very low heel).

Boys

  • Plain white buttoned dress shirts (sleeves or sleeveless) with plain white tee underneath. 

  • Long Black neck tie

  • Black dress slacks with black belt (or suspenders) NO skin-tight options or jeans.

  • Long black socks with black dress shoes (NO sneakers/athletics).

All Genders - Keep jewelry to a minimum. 

No leather or revealing/see-through clothing. 

The purpose for concert attire is to begin teaching our students pride, unity & code of professional conduct & presentation, as they one day may be traveling to represent our school & community.
