We would like to welcome all of our new members and are looking forward to getting to know all of you. As a new member to the vocal department, there are two requirements that you will need to purchase.
The first item is concert attire. For the ladies, we use a long black formal dress. All band, orchestra and choir ladies wear the same dress. We order these dresses through the school during early September so they arrive before the first concert. You will be measured and try on some sample sizes before they are ordered. The cost of the dress will be $63.00. For the gentlemen, you will need a tuxedo. We use a standard black tuxedo with a standard length jacket. We have an agreement with Black Tie Tuxedos in Island Park for a great deal on the tux. Please make sure you get it ordered in time for the first concert in early October. Gentlemen will pay for their tuxedos to whichever place you choose to purchase it. Ladies will pay the school for the concert dress.
The second item that you will need is a choir folder. This is a high quality folder that has many features and is personalized with your name embossed on the front. With proper care, it will last the entire time you are at Cypress Lake. The cost for the folder is $27.00.
Both of these are one time expenses and both the dress and the folder can be used for your entire time in the vocal department.
