Concert Dress

What should you be wearing when you sing in a South Devon Choir concert?

Gentlemen

Black dinner suit, white shirt and bow tie as advised.  You may be given a coloured tie to wear to match the ladies’ scarves, but if purple scarves are being worn, then black bow ties are required please.

Ladies

SCARF: Fold in half lengthwise and in half again. Thread through just one ring at the back of the neck and tie at the front with a double knot. Getting the scarves tied identically is the ideal situation as the eye is most drawn to them.  Please get help as necessary 🙂

TOPS: Long sleeve black tops with a V or round neck. Please avoid wearing a cardigan over the top of your top; if you feel the cold perhaps you could put an extra layer under your top.

TROUSERS/SKIRTS: Smart black trousers or long skirt.

SHOES/TIGHTS: Black – remember you will be on your feet and may be accessing and standing on staging.  Please bear this in mind when choosing your footwear.

See the photographs below for an example of concert appearance.
