Wardrobe for Season 18
The chorus will be wearing matching vests, black long-sleeve dress shirts (no button-down collars), and tuxedos for major concerts.
We'll have vests at rehearsal so members may figure out the correct size to order. Once you know your size, go tohttps://smile.amazon.com(if you haven't already done so, choose Quarryland as your charity of choice). Then order this vest. Funding assistance is available for those who may need help in purchasing the vest.
For tuxedos - if you already own one, just bring it in for Casey to look over. It will likely be fine. Casey also has tuxedos from Franklin College you may borrow. Those preferring to rent a tux from Men's Wearhouse (thanks to Mark Cox) in the College Mall should go in to be measured by Tuesday of this week. See the e-mail message from Mark sent this past Saturday.
Helpful hints, words of encouragement, and notes from the Board.
