CONCERT ATTIRE & SWAP SHOP
Students participating in an NHS in-class ensemble must adhere to a dress code when performing at a concert. Here’s an overview of the requirements for concert attire. NHS music teachers, Mr. Vanderwoude (Chorale, Chorus, Symphony) and Ms. McLallen (Concert, Symphonic & Jazz Band) also provide dress code requirements on their websites.
Note these requirements may vary for special performances such as the NHS graduation ceremony on June 3, 2019. The NHS music staff will share these details with students and parents closer to the event.
Gently used concert attire may also be available from recent graduates. To sell or buy a gently used dress or other attire, visit our Swap Shop page.
