A reminder that all musicians must wear the concert attire
. Females wear the designated long black dress and males may wear any comparable tuxedo. The Advanced and Concert Choirs also need the double strand choker necklace (item #1076) from the website 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.
