Choirs News cont.--Shorts Policy and Dress Rehearsal

This week we have a LOT of news to share so instead of bombarding you with all of it in one super long email you can expect a few emails spread throughout the week.  This is email two.

Shorts Policy

Spring is in the air and students are going to want to get out the shorts again.  Just remember, our policy regarding shorts--if your fingers placed down your side can touch bare skin, it's too short. Bare midriffs and spaghetti straps are also discouraged.

Dress Rehearsal

On April 7-8, ALL CHOIRS will have a dress rehearsal.  During their regular rehearsal times, please have your students wear their complete formal choir uniform.  We will be checking uniforms for correct concert attire just to make sure everyone has what they need in plenty of time for the spring concert.  Need a reminder of what your child's uniform should be?  Check out the information in the handbook below:

  • Bella Voce and Illuminati men:  Black pants, white long-sleeved collared shirt and tie (all ordered through the choir) with black belt, socks, and shoes.
  • Bella Voce and Illuminati women:  Formal black dress (ordered through the choir) with black hose and black closed-toed shoes.
  • Music Experience and Principio boys:  Black pants and white long-sleeved collared dress shirt with black belt, socks, and shoes (all self-acquired)
  • Music Experience and Principio girls:  Black pants or skirt (knee-length or below) and white long-sleeved collared dress shirt with black tights and black shoes (self-acquired).
If you are in Principio or Music Experience and have not purchased pants, skirt, or short yet, I highly recommend ordering them from Land's End as the board voted this month to use their products for COHC Principio and Music Experience uniforms in 2015-2016. You'd just be getting a head start.
