Concert Attire Order Forms Due Monday September 19, 2016

It’s time for WHS to begin an annual rite of fall – the issuance of concert attire for students in performing ensembles.  In order for students to be ready for the late fall concert season, concert attire needs to be ordered now, as delivery can take up to eight weeks.  This process is facilitated by Parents of Performing Students (POPS).   If you have questions, please email POPS volunteer Denise Grossi at denisegrossi@hotmail.com.  Copies of this memo and all attire requirements are also available on the Performing Arts web site and POPS Facebook page.

 What You Need to Know and Do

  • Review the WPS Performing Arts Department’s concert attire requirements for each performing group in which your child participates.
  • Complete the attached Concert Attire Order Form.
  • Completed forms must be returned with payment to performing arts teachers by Monday September 19th to ensure on-time delivery of the attire items.
  • Checks should be made payable to “ Wellesley POPS”
  • Even if no concert attire is needed, each performing arts student must return an order form. If you already own each item of required attire from a prior year and you are sure that everything still fits and is in good condition, please indicate that on the order form. We need to keep track and be sure that every student is outfitted.
  • Measurements ARE REQUIRED when ordering attire for students in chorus and orchestra.
  • Measurements are NOT REQUIRED when ordering attire for students in Wind Ensemble or any of the bands.
  • Try on samples.  Samples of all items will be available to try on in the back of the WHS Choral Room the first few weeks of school. TRYING ON SAMPLES HELPS GET RIGHT SIZE/BEST FIT FOR DRESSES.
  • Tux Jackets and Red Band Blazers are owned by WHS and rented to students each year.  Volunteers will fit students during their choral/orchestra/band classes in by early – mid November and measurements are not required.
  • Dresses and tuxedo pants have un-finished hems and you will be required to hem prior to the first concert.
  • Financial assistance is available through POPS in cases of need.  All requests for aid are confidential.  Contact your child’s performing arts teacher for details.
  •  Need help?  If your performer needs help with measuring or sizing for anything (dresses, pants, shirts), POPS volunteers will be available the following dates:
