Concert Attire - Students may select from three options: traditional tuxedo, button-down dress shirt with trousers, or concert gowns. Attire measuring and ordering takes place at the beginning of the school year. The most recent information about pricing and ordering details are shared with families at that time. A small inventory of all performance attire is kept on hand for students who join after attire orders are taken, or who need to exchange for a different size during the school year. 

Tuxedo

Tuxedos are ordered through Friar Tux “school uniforms” division. Students who select this option will receive detailed ordering and measuring instructions. Prices may vary and a la carte ordering is available, but a full tuxedo with shoes is approximately $185. A green pocket square is provided to each student for use during concerts.

black oxford

The button-down dress shirt and tuxedo trousers are ordered by the Boosters at the start of each year based on demand. The dress shirt costs $30, and the pants are $40. Students may wear any matte black dress shoe with this option (no casual or canvas shoes). Attire gown

Concert gowns are made-to-order based on each student’s measurements. The gown costs $105. This attire option can be paired with either heeled or flat matte black shoes. Heeled shoes, called Character Shoes, are available on Amazon or locally at Expressly Motion. Character shoes should have a 1.5” heel, and may be any brand (such as Capezio, Danshuz, Balera, etc). Gowns are paired with a simple drop-pearl necklace (provided to each student for use during concerts).


The boosters keep a lending inventory of all attire on hand. Families may purchase or borrow their attire. Those who wish to borrow are asked to complete the Attire Borrowing Agreement.
