Concert Dress:

Concert attire is important. A great sounding band not only sounds good, but also looks good. The concert attire will include black pants, jeans or slacks/skirts (for the girls), black shoes sneakers, dark socks, and their EVMS Band shirt. These items are to be worn at all concerts and festivals. If any student needs financial help with any of these items, please contact me. No student will be left out because of financial reasons. If you have any suggestions, please contact me and let me know. Symphonic Band members will be issued a tuxedo and are responsible for keeping it clean and in excellent condition.

The EVMS Band shirt is a red polo with an eagle logo embroidered in the shirt. The cost of the shirt is $16.00, XXL and larger costs $17.00+.  All shirts are adult sizes. If your child is a returning member, then they will not be required to purchase a shirt unless it is damaged, or no longer fits them.
