Fossil Ridge Choir performances at school concerts, local and state contests and festivals, and community events should represent the choir program and the school community in a way that reflects our values. Each ensemble has a different formal dress requirement. The following factors were taken into account when designating the choir uniform. 
 

  • The performance attire should reflect the high standards of the school and the musical ensemble.

  • The performance attire should conform to school dress code.

  • The financial and long-term practicality of the uniform will be strongly considered.

  • Whenever possible the least expensive and highest quality option is taken.

  • Uniforms styles are changed only when it becomes impractical to procure similar uniforms or a consensus is reached that a change must be made.

  • Students are responsible for following the link provided to purchase their personal uniform, or arranging with the directors a used dress alternative.

  • No student will be denied participation because of financial hardship.

Attire Options

Dress: Dresses need to be hemmed to be one inch maximum from the floor, but not dragging. Hem tape is recommended for this so that changes can be made in the future if needed. Singers have several options in acquiring a dress to allow for flexibility for your family. Students may:

2) Purchase a brand new Concerto Dress in FOREST GREEN (Concert Choir) OR a Sofia Dress in Black (SaberCat or Vox Femina). Go up a size from normal dress size.

3) Purchase a used Concerto/Sofia dress from a former singer at a price negotiated by those parties
