Concert uniform

The choir’s concert uniform is decided by the Committee, and may be changed from time to time. We may also add other items, such as flowers, if the occasion seems appropriate. The Summer concert uniform is slightly less formal than the Winter and Spring concerts. It is, unfortunately, impossible to please everyone but Choir members are asked to comply with it as the presentation and appearance of the choir are important to our performances, complementing the high standard of our music. If any part of it is really impossible for you, please have a word about it with Stella or Richard. Thank you very much.
