Band Uniform Expectations

As we attempt to produce an authentic performance experience for the students, the Robert Thirsk Band uniform is required for all performances unless the music director requests a change. The Robert Thirsk Band uniform consists of a music department issued shirt (student purchase cost – $20), music department issued necktie (rental fee – $10). Students will also need to purchase on their own: black dress pants, black socks and black dress shoes. Students failing to wear the proper uniform will not be allowed to perform. This aspect of ensemble performance is a competency in the Band 15, 25, 35 Program of Studies that is directly associated with General Learner Outcome 3, which states: “Explore and apply elements of quality performance and performance etiquette.”
