We have all new uniforms this year and it is going to require a little more effort than usual to get them out to everyone. Every member of the BHS Orchestra program must get fitted next week for a uniform. In addition, all tux pants and dresses must be altered (hemmed) before our concert, which is in a little over two weeks (October 4).
Fitting times: Tuesday and Thursday (September 20-22), 3:15-5:30 p.m. in the BHS Orchestra room.
All students need black dress shoes and boys need a white tux shirt and black socks. We will provide dresses, tux jackets, tux pants, cummerbunds and ties.
