Attire:
JH Band – Gentlemen are to wear nice pants, dress shoes, shirt and tie. No jeans or tennis shoes. Ladies are to wear a dress, skirt and blouse, or nice pants outfit. I respectfully ask that skirts be knee-length or longer. Please look your best ☺

HS band and choir – Gentlemen need to wear black dress pants, black socks, and black shoes. Wear your tux shirt and tie. Ladies are to dress in concert black. You may wear pants or skirt. The traditional skirt is floor-length. A simple gold or silver necklace, or pearls are a perfectly acceptable accessory. Keep earrings small and non-distracting. Look classy ☺

Severe Weather
If, per chance, severe weather is imminent, watch your regular TV station, and/or check the band web page (www.fairbanksband.org), blog (www.fhsbando.blogspot.com), or call 937-349-3721x1306 to see if the concert is still on. Students SHOULD know of any cancellations before school is over, but if it gets bad after school, these are your methods of information.

Break a leg! Be precise, be passionate, have fun, and MAKE MUSIC.
