[Sprague Band News] How to order concert wear

This post contains instructions on how to obtain suitable concert attire.

Ladies:

The Sprague standard black concert dress is available from: “Tuxedo Wholesaler”.
This is the URL for their online order form.
The dress style is “Jordan – Classical”. It must be Black only – not the purple or blue one.
Cost: $57.50 plus shipping.
The web page has a sizing chart and measurement instructions.
This is the required concert dress for Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, and Symphony. It is also suitable (though not required) for Symphonic Band. Since they’re lightly worn, one concert dress will likely last your entire career at Sprague. It is machine-washable. Since we always use this same dress style, it can be resold to another student after graduation. Your dress will need to be hemmed to length after it is delivered.

Gentlemen:

The standard concert attire for men (all ensembles) is a plain black tuxedo, black bow tie, and white tux shirt.  No vest or cummerbund. Suspenders are your option. Tuxes can often be found at local formal shops, or vendors such as:
or Uniformal Wearhouse

Costs are comparable to that of a concert dress.

Buy the cheapest plain black tux you can find, and you’ll look fine on stage. You’ll also be in good shape for any formal social event. After you’ve rented a tux once or twice, you might as well have owned one outright.

Please direct any specific personal questions or issues to Dr. Greenwood.

Start thinking about concert wear – there is a link at spragueband.org featuring the girl’s dress that our students use.  Guys wear a tuxedo – tux pants, white tux shirt, cummerbund & tie with jacket.  There are several online resources, as well as local retailers that should be able to help you out.

Thanks!
PS – FORMER students:  If you are no longer in need of your concert wear and would like to donate it back to the program, please get in touch with me.  We have a very small inventory and would like to continue building on that for emergencies and loaners!  THANK YOU!

[Sprague Band News] Meeting Tonight – cancelled for weather

Greetings all,

Tonight’s meeting has been cancelled due to weather – the tops of the trees are still frozen from last night, and it’s supposed to snow for the next couple of hours.  It’s not worth it for anyone to be out in this. 
We will postpone the meeting to next Thursday, November 20th at 7pm in the Forum.  You can also pick up any loaned tables and pop ups before the meeting starting at 6:30 in the field house.
Thanks for your attention – stay warm and safe!
Questions?  email pres@spragueband.org
