This Week in MBB

Concert Uniform Updates
All band members will wear formal concert attire for the March 10 concert, and have been fit for their dress or tux (pants and jacket, includes tie). Please note that Band members are responsible for the following:
  • Dresses: You provide black dress shoes and black hose (optional).
  • Tuxes: You provide white tuxedo shirt, black socks and black dress shoes (clean marching shoes are acceptable). Tuxedo shirts are available for purchase at Hobby Lobby or several online clothing retailers. A few tuxedo shirts are available from the uniform closet--contact Jennifer Horning to request one.
Band members should allow enough time to dress before report to their performance call time. Also, Jennifer could use some extra hands to help before and after the concert (assist with dress ties, bow ties, cummerbunds, etc., and make sure uniforms are hung correctly afterward). If you are able to help, contact Jennifer at [email protected].
