All students are required to dress in appropriate concert attire for this performance.  Typically, concert attire consists of a white top & black bottom.  This is no different than the last two concerts.  Please see suggestions below:

Girls:  A white blouse or sweater with black slacks or skirts.  Black socks or tights with black shoes. Legs must be covered.  Please NO mini-skirts, leggings or black jeans. 

Boys:  A white button down shirt with black slacks, black socks & black shoes.  No ties are necessary.  Please NO black jeans. 


If you haven’t already done so, please check the Sign-Up Genius volunteer site HERE to help us throughout the afternoon!   We still need parents to take tickets/collect money, assist with set-up and strike and we always need more food for the reception!

If you have any questions about the dress rehearsal, concert, tickets, concert dress, or volunteer opportunities, please email Paige at
