   CONCERT ATTIRE

A reminder that all musicians must wear the concert attire. Females wear the required  Lillian gown and males may wear any comparable uniform to the poly-notch tuxedo . The Advanced and Concert Choirs also need the double strand choker necklace (ordered by Mrs. Itkin) and robes. The Music Boosters Community Closet still has some garments available. If you missed the sale and still need the required attire, contact MusicBoostersBCC@gmail.com to make an appointment for your child to try on outfits.
