Black performance folders are required. It can be either the “Deluxe Black Folder” or the “Choralex Compact”. They may be purchased from musicfolder.com or call 1-877-246-7253. Ask the Chorus Manager about a folder. We often order in bulk and this can save you several dollars over an individually placed order.
Concert Dress (Winter and Spring Seasons)
This dress policy is for most concerts. This dress is part of our desire to present a more professional appearance at our concerts. If there is an extended season or public service concert/event, any change in the required dress will be announced during rehearsals for that concert or event. If there are any questions regarding the concert dress, please talk to or email the board president. Also, if this dress code is difficult for you financially, please let the president know. Often, another member has an extra clothing item and will be happy to lend it to you.
Men – Black tuxedo with black bow tie, white shirt, black socks, black shoes; no vest, black cummerbund optional.
Women – Black 3/4 sleeve top item # 9793AA from Formal Fashions, Inc. Long black skirt (just above the shoe), Black stockings, Black shoes – medium or flat heel. Jewelry – conservative, non flashy.
Please, no strongly-scented personal care and cleansing products such as hair spray or aftershave should be worn during concerts. Even small amounts could compromise a singer’s breathing or otherwise affect highly sensitive people. If you have questions, or if this poses a financial hardship, please talk to the board president or Meredith Hutchings, PFC secretary, and we should be able to resolve the situation.
Auditions for our Spring 2018 concerts will take place in January. Keep checking back for specific dates and times.
MUSIC – CHRISTMAS SEASON 2017
This Christmas, we will be performing pieces from many of our past Christmas concerts. If you were a member for any of these past performances, you may still have some or all of these pieces. If not, the PFC will provide any music that you may be missing.
Your music must be purchased separately. However, if you own or have access to the correct scores, they may be used. No photocopied music will be allowed unless it is provided in that form by the PFC.
