Gown and Tuxedo Information
Gown Information for Concert Bands
Girls will be measured for their formal, black concert gown and sent home with the concert information form available above.
Each girl purchases her own gown which she will use throughout her time in the Pope Band. The gowns cost $75. We must receive the payment before your daughter can receive her gown. If you are not sure if you have paid for your daughter's dress, you can check your band account statement in Charms.
Fitting Times for Concert Gowns:
Information has been emailed to all concert students regarding fitting times. If you are not on the schedule and need a time, please contact Cyndy Dixon (firstname.lastname@example.org or 573-416-3334).
Tuxedo Information for Concert Bands
The Pope High School band program provides a black tux (pants and jacket) for all male band students to wear for the band concerts. The uniform rental fee is included in the band fees.
Each student will also need a white tuxedo shirt with a winged collar, black cummerbund, black bowtie, black dress shoes and black socks, and accessories, i.e. cuff links, shirt studs, etc.
Our first concert is scheduled for September 10th. Please do not delay in purchasing the necessary items. If you have a shirt from last year please try it on to make sure it still fits. All tux pants will need to be hemmed before the concert.
**Please DO NOT cut off any fabric when you hem the pants.**
What you need to wear with the Tuxedo
White wing collar pleated tuxedo shirt, black satin bowtie and cummerbund, black shirt studs and cuff links. Black dress shoes with completely black socks.
