Concert Attire

The purpose of having a dress code for concerts is to make sure the audience's attention is focused on the ensemble as a whole and not any particular individual(s) within the ensemble. The clothes worn should be modest, not designed to draw attention to one's appearance. Full concert dress is expected for all performances.​
