"got music?" T-Shirt Orders

If you were unable to order t-shirts at the music dept. bbq, please print out the attached form.  Fill out the form and send to school along with a check made payable to Rio Norte ASB.  Your student can turn in the form and check directly at the ASB window.  Please let us know if you have any questions at rionortemusic11@gmail.com

The "got music?" t-shirts are worn at the more casual performances.  Members will be required to wear their "got music?" t-shirt with blue jeans and casual shoes that comply with Rio Norte's dress code.

Concert Formal Information

For students to look their best, please finish having your student's formal altered if necessary.

For the girls:
The gowns should be hemmed to the top of the foot, right at the bottom of the ankle.  If the gown is too long, it can be hazardous while navigating the risers or walking by music stands.  If the gown is too short, it detracts from the overall continuity.  Please no safety pins down the back!  While we try to order the closest fit, the gowns often need some alteration.  Shoes must be black, closed toe with a heel no higher than 1 1/2 inch.  If you cannot find your pearls, please let us know right away!  We will replace them, but there will be a charge for future replacement.

For the guys:
Please remember to wear the bow tie and shirt studs.  If you have the cuff-links please wear them.  If your cuff-links have broken, it's okay, they are an optional accessory.  The shoes must be black dress shoes (no athletic shoes) and black dress socks.  The audience is at eye level with the feet and ankles.  It is amazing how much it detracts from the performance if the audience is focused on a crazy pair of socks or shoes!!
