CYO and JMO
As requirements differ from concert to concert, the Artistic Director may approve changes to the standard dress code for special concerts. The dress code is in line with the professional aspirations of the orchestra and is not a platform for negotiation. Standard concert dress is as follows:
Men: Black collared shirt, Black trousers, black socks and dress shoes.
Women: long black evening dress or black skirt/pants with black top, plain black stockings (mandatory), black dress shoes with enclosed toe. Minimum length for skirt must be well past the knee – floor or ankle length is desirable. Sleeves should be elbow length or longer (No sleeveless garments or shoe string straps). Minimal accessories.
Exclusions for both male and female: denim, t-shirts, leather clothing, PVC, work boots, sandals and leg warmers.
All members to wear black below the waist (includes shoes and socks) and white above. Coloured sashes and bow ties will be provided by Music for Canberra to each group and children may select from either as they feel comfortable and subject to availability. If your child wishes to wear a bow tie, this is only permitted as neck wear and a collared shirt must be worn. Sashes may be worn as a cummerbund or tied in a bow around the waist.
