Everything you need to know about Concert Attire!

posted Sep 28, 2015, 6:49 AM by S Lee

Concert attire fittings have begun.  PLEASE RETURN YOUR SIGNED UNIFORM CONTRACT.  Concert dresses and tuxedos may not be taken home without a signed contract.

Parents, PLEASE consider volunteering to help fit our students in their concert attire. Fittings take place during the school day in the uniform storage room located in the back of the Orchestra room.  All help is welcome and very much appreciated!  Click on the link below to sign up.  Thank you!

Tuxedo Shirt and Bowtie Orders

On Thursday, October 8th, a representative from Francis Enterprises will be at WLN during school hours to take orders for tuxedo shirts and bowties. Each student ordering a tuxedo shirt will be fitted to determine proper shirt size before the order is placed.  These items will be part of the tuxedo concert uniform and will not change from year to year.  Tuxedo shirts and bowties purchased in previous years may be worn again this year.  

Returning members need to locate and try on last year’s shirt ASAP.  Please make sure you still have all of the required items and that everything still fits!

**This is the only time tuxedo shirt and bowtie orders will be placed!**

All male Band, Orchestra and Choir students will need a tuxedo shirt and bowtie.  Due to a shortage in our Concert Dress Inventory, some female students will be outfitted in Concert Tuxedos and will therefore also need to purchase a Tuxedo Shirt and Bowtie.  Tuxedos are loaned to the student by WLN and are returned at the end of the current school year.

Prices are as follows:
Tuxedo Shirt - $19.95
Bowtie - $3.25
Shirt/Tie Combo - $22.00

Order forms will be available at school.  Please return the order form with payment by Thursday, October 1st.  Make checks payable to WLNMB.  All orders must be paid in full before the student will be fitted.  All sales are final and no refunds will be given.

*NOTE:  We are no longer able to purchase tuxedo shoes from our supplier.  If you have not purchased them in the past then you may wear your own black dress shoes.  There will be some “gently used” and new tuxedo shoes available for purchase if you would like to wear patent leather shoes with your tuxedo.  Used shoes are $10/pair; new shoes are $20/pair.  We also have some “gently used” tuxedo shirts for $10.  Shoes and shirts are available while supplies last.  If you are interested in purchasing these used shoes or shirts, please bring your student with you to WLN on Tuesday, September 29th between 5:30 and 8 pm.  I will be in the Uniform Room, located in the Orchestra room.  Questions – please contact Susan Rees:
