Calling all orchestra families: Help us build an Orchestra Concert Closet
It is that time of the year when our minds turn to the upcoming orchestra concert season.
Time to dig those dresses, suits and tuxedos out of the back of the closet.
Isn’t it funny how something that looked so great on our musicians just a few short months ago now looks like it shrunk two sizes at the cleaners?
It can really be frustrating (and expensive) to buy a new formal outfit at the beginning of the school year only to realize half way through the year that it no longer fits.
What do you usually do with all that out grown concert attire?
Well, here’s your answer. We would like to start an orchestra concert closet where we could store outgrown but still very wearable concert attire. This clothing and formal attire would then be made available to any orchestra family prior to each concert for outfitting their growing musician.
Since our first concerts of the season are coming up soon: we would like to collect these items on Monday 9/26 and Tuesday 9/27. Just have your student drop these items in the collection boxes which will be in the orchestra room. Then on Thursday 9/29 and Friday 9/30 after school we will have these items sorted out and ready to be taken home by their new owners (volunteers needed to help on these dates).
What to donate: male and female concert attire (tuxedos, suits, dress shirts, bow ties, cummerbunds, vests, suspenders, belts, dresses, skirts, dress pants, dress shoes).
Please make sure these items are clean and in good condition.
