Performing Band Formal Concert Attire (SW, CBI, CBII)

It’s that time of year! Our Rogers Band students are nearing their first “formal" concert, and it is important they look the part! Our concert dress consists of an all-black concert attire, so students all look the same. It also looks professional on the concert stage! Students should have turned in a picture of them in the concert attire on Friday, November 17th, so it is ready to go for their Winter Concert on December 7th. Please see the examples in the handout for what is (and is not) acceptable “concert black” attire: Formal Concert Attire Handout!!
