Uniforms

Our choir’s appearance, as well as its sound, is important in presenting a professional and artistic performance. Members must wear the complete and correct uniform for performances and adhere to performance appearance policy.

Performance Appearance Policy

  • The choir uniform should fit properly and be clean, pressed, and in good repair.
  • Hair should be groomed away from the face.  Barrettes, narrow headbands, and elastic bands that match hair color may be used. However, please refrain from using colorful bows, ribbons, barrettes, or noticeable ornamentation.
  • Make-up and jewelry should not be noticeable. Stud earrings will be allowed (no more than two per ear).
  • Our goal is to look unified and professional. Final appearance decisions are at the discretion of the Directors and Administrative Director.

 

Used Uniforms

This year, Concert Choir and Music Makers will be wearing new uniforms, but the white shirts used in Music Makers and Concert Choir may be resuable.  Singers who would like to resell Chamber Choir uniforms or Music Makers/Concert Choir white shirts should contact Kathy to discuss.

Casual Uniforms

We have replaced our red logo polo shirts with a red t-shirt with our new CIYC logo! Singers will wear these CIYC logo t-shirts for the January retreat, select rehearsals at other locations, and whenever else they would like to just for fun.  At this time, singers should have already received their shirt.

If you would like to help us defray the cost of the shirts, you can submit a donation of $10 to cover the cost of your child's shirt: https://www.ciycsings.org/make-a-payment/
