How to Put on a Concert Band Uniform


Hey! You’re probably done with Marching Band by
now, so I’d say it’s about time we start Concert Band. For Concert Band, guys will wear tuxedos,
and girls will wear long, black dresses. The tuxedo consists of dress shoes and dress
socks, pants, a tuxedo shirt, a bow tie, and a jacket. Once you slide into your socks, put on and
button your shirt, slip on your pants, set up your bow tie, pop on your dress shoes,
and hop in to your jacket, you’ll be ready for the concert! But not for dinner. Don’t eat in your uniform, whether it be the
long, black dress or your tuxedo. Not only will you be ready for the concert,
but you’ll also look like Band, James Band. After the concert, you’ll need to put away
and take care of your uniform. Hang your pants carefully along the creases
to prevent wrinkles. Wash your tuxedo shirt according to the instructions
inside. And put your bow tie back in your garment
bag. You don’t want to lose it, supplies are limited. Then store your tuxedo in your garment bag,
halfway unzipped, so that it can breathe. Alright, now for the long black dress. First of all, you’ll need a pair black dress
shoes without stiletto heels. Stiletto heels can catch on the hem of your
dress and tear it loose. You’ll also want to wear pantyhose with your
concert dress and a half-slip to prevent cling. Since part of Concert Band takes place in
the winter, static build-up is common. Use some static guard on your pantyhose and
slip. The dresses also feature ties in the back. Don’t worry about tying them though! Uniform volunteers will help you tie a loose
square knot at the base of your spine once you arrive to school for the concert. Last but not least, if your long hair prevents
you from seeing the conductor, you’ll want to put your hair up with a black headband. If your dress ever needs a cleaning after
a concert, be sure to wash it separately in cold water, tumble dry on low, and remove
promptly. Then hang it up to avoid wrinkles. Alright everyone, I think I’ve covered everything
about your concert band uniforms. So with that said, have a great Concert Band
season.
