Concert Band and Wind Ensemble – First performance is January 2018 Men wear black tuxedoes and Women wear black concert dresses. Students are expected to purchase their concert attire or obtain a used outfit from the Music Boosters or a friend or sibling.
The men wear formal black tuxedos, including tux shirt, cummerbund, bow tie, jacket and trousers; these may be purchased directly from Camillo’s in Norwalk on Main Avenue. The Music Department has established a special arrangement with the management there to accommodate our students. The cost is $250.00 (jacket, pants, shirt, cummerbund, tie, and studs), with the black tuxedo shoes $50.00 extra. Camillo’s will also do alterations for the new tuxes. When the boys are fitted, Camillo’s leaves a great deal of expansion room, taking into consideration how much the boys grow in high school. The boys will receive free alterations as they grow. They will NOT get a new tuxedo however! All boys must wear black socks with their black shoes. Please give yourself PLENTY of lead time since the process at Camillo’s can take several weeks and the first concert is on January 17th. Alterations are generally needed so Camillo’s asks for the fittings as soon as possible.
The women wear black full-length dresses and black closed toe shoes (NO sandals) with a low heel, (no more than 2 inches). As soon as the dress is delivered, please measure the length of the garment with the shoes on for hemming the dress. The finished length of the dress should be 1 inch off the floor and touching the top of the toe of the shoe! Your daughters’ concert dress sizes may be larger than sizes you expect in retail stores so don’t be surprised!
You will be supplied with ordering information for concert dresses in September 2016. The cost per dress is $70.00.
USED ATTIRE INFORMATION, DRESSES AND TUXES
This year, parent Alison Conroy is helping to distribute the recycled attire. The updates of available items and sizes can be seen at WHSConcertAttire@gmail.com. The tuxes are free, but be advised that altering the used tuxedos must be paid by the parent, not Camillo’s. If you have any questions please contact Alison directly.
