Men will need black dress socks and black dress shoes. Ladies will need nude hose and black dress shoes. Please purchase 1” heels or lower. Remember that during performances you will be on your feet for quite some time. I have included the links for both the concert dress and tuxedo package. If you have any ordering or sizing questions, you can contact the company at 1-800-421-7479. They are very helpful.
The Women’s Ensemble and Elite Ensemble perform in choral gowns & tuxedos for most of their events. The gowns are basic black, 100% polyester and can be machine-washed. They are virtually wrinkle free and require very little maintenance. We order the Juliet Concert Dress from the American Band Company.

The tuxedo package includes: 100% polyester notch label coat, black pleat front/non adjustable trousers (adjustable trousers are also available), black satin-banded bow ties, fullback vest & ¼ pleated laydown white dress shirt. We order the tuxedos from the American Band Company. Men may use their tuxedos for prom or any other outside event as long as it is ready for performances. *New members may want to order together to save on shipping costs*. Men can also get their tux from any local store as long as it includes the same pieces. (The link to order the tuxedos) Men’s Tuxedo Package: http://www.americanband.com/store-2/tuxedo-package/
Elite and Women’s Ensemble will need their formal wear for most public performances with the exception of school sporting events, tree trim, etc. where we will perform in our sweatshirts. The sweatshirt design is the same so only new students or students that are in need of a replacement $25, and checks are also written to the Caravel Music Boosters. Please bring your $25 sweatshirt payment to our first rehearsal on Tuesday, September 15th. If you are performing in both Women’s and Elite (which many of you are), you will be wearing the same formal attire and sweatshirt for both choirs throughout your high school career.
