CONCERT ATTIRE & SHOUT OUT!
Caroline, Rachel and Mary Grace are modeling current trends in ladies' concert attire. Your black must cover your body, especially your legs. Modest jewelry is okay as well.
Jaxon is sporting his school-issued tuxedo, along with the tux shirt, black bow tie, black socks and dress shoes that he provided. Note that we do not wear the cummerbund. Boys in Symphonic 1 and 2 will wear the tuxes for performances while Concert and Intermediate Bands will wear all black professional attire.
I love this picture of our star for the week, Blake N.! Blake is one of the nicest people and is always willing to help. He is a trumpeter in Symphonic 1 and Jazz Band, and also plays off-campus golf. We are very lucky to have students like Blake in the North Band!
