Mrs. Grosso will begin concert band attire fittings Tuesday, August 25th, during all band classes. Due to the size of some of the classes, this will be about a 2 week process, so it may be a while before your student is fitted. There are different requirements for each band, so please look for your student's band below to see what is needed. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Grosso at
Wind Symphony (WS) & Chamber Ensemble (CE):
All students must wear solid black attire.
Boys: You will be fitted for a black tuxedo shirt only. The cost will be $22. Please note that the shirts that we purchase only come in one sleeve length, so they may be a little long or short in the sleeves for some students. The critical thing that we need to fit for is the neck. We want to make sure that the collar isn't too tight and that they have some room to grow. With that being said, for some of the boys, the shirts are going to be a bit big in the torso in order to get the proper fit in the neck, but when they tuck their shirt in it looks fine.
You will need to provide your own solid black slacks, belt, socks, and shoes.
NOTE: If you were issued a black tuxedo shirt last year and will be wearing it again this year for WS or CE band, please try it on to be sure it is not too tight in the neck or elsewhere.
You will need to provide your own solid black attire. It can be a dress or a blouse with slacks or a skirt. Solid black shoes are needed as well.
Symphonic Band (SB) and Wind Ensemble (WE):
You will be fitted in a school owned tuxedo and white shirt that you will need to purchase. The tuxedo will be rented for $25 for the school year. You will have to purchase the shirt for $17.
NOTE: If you have a white tuxedo shirt from last year, please try it on to be sure it still fits and isn't too tight in the neck or elsewhere.
You will need to provide your own solid black belt, socks, and shoes.
You will also be responsible for getting the slacks hemmed if needed. Please be sure not to have any material cut from the slacks as they are used year after year for various students.
You will be fitted in a floor length black dress and the cost is $65. The dresses come in only one length which is quite long, so the majority of girls will need their dresses hemmed. It is a 2-layer dress, so the alteration cost is typically $30-$40. I do have the below used dresses that are for sale if you are interested. Since all of these dresses have been hemmed to the previous owner's height, that will be a consideration as to whether or not a used dress will work for an individual.
Five Used Dresses Available for Sale: Sizes 4 (1), 6 (1), 8 (2), 14 (1) - Cost: $30 each
If you think you'd be interested in purchasing one of the used dresses for your student, please e-mail me right away so that I can make a note to have them try on that specific dress to see if the length will work. It will be first come, first served.
You will need to provide your own solid black shoes as well.
RCG Members: If you have money in your Student Account, you may charge attire fees to your account.
