SPRING CONCERT 2022 - TBD
We expect to add performance opportunities to our calendar as they arise, for example performances at nursing homes, community events, Piccolo Spoleto, Pride Festival, etc. As every member of our choir is important we hope that each singer is able to perform at these events. We understand that previously-scheduled conflicts may exist and those students will be excused without penalty. We will give members as much notice as possible about these additional performances.
Concert dress rehearsals are mandatory and will take place during regular rehearsal time the week before a concert. If we are able to rehearse at our performance space we will give ample notice, and will ask for parent volunteers to help assist in the process.
Formal performances like our Winter and Spring concerts are special occasions, and we want the singers to feel like what they are wearing reflects the tone of the evening. We have chosen not to have a “uniform” that requires all children to dress alike, as we believe in the importance of personal style. That being said, we also don’t want a few singers’ chosen outfits to distract the audience from what the main purpose of our group is - the music! Therefore we ask that singers wear tasteful “dress clothes” that are comfortable and do not distract either themselves or the audience from the music.
We will have a “Concert Attire Check” a few weeks before the concert, during which singers will bring/wear their concert outfits to rehearsal so we can make sure they are appropriate for the performance (we will be asking for parent volunteers to help with this process). If at any point in the season leading up the concert you are unsure of what your singer should wear please do not hesitate to contact us, bring it the outfit, or send us a picture of the singer dressed in the potential outfit.

INFORMAL CONCERT ATTIRE
We plan to purchase Palmetto Youth Choir shirts soon, and we will wear these shirts with coordinating bottoms (TBD) for our informal performances. We know it gets hot here in Charleston, so at times we will wear shorts. Please make sure shorts are “fingertip length” and do not have any see-through holes or tears.
