Fall Band Concert

The first annual Fall Band Concert is November 13th in the Performing Arts Center located at Central Campus.  The program will begin at 7 pm with performances by the Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Symphony, and the Wind Ensemble.
Report time is 6:15 pm.

MCHS Band Concert Dress Code:
Concert attire is black and white dress clothes. All school dress code rules apply! The dress code can be found on page 37 of the Student Handbook.

Appropriate attire is as follows:
Black dress pants
Black or white dress shirt
Black socks & dress shoes
Optional: Black or white tie

Black dress pants with nice black or white top
Black skirt with black tights/leggings and nice black or white top
Black dress with black tights/leggings
Black dress shoes (with black socks or tights)

Girls please note
  • Black tights/nylons are required if you are wearing a skirt or dress.
  • Skirts must be just above the knee or longer - NO shorter! A skirt that only reaches your fingertips is still too short for sitting on a stage in a formal concert setting.
  • Dresses and tops may be sleeveless (i.e., only open at the shoulder) – spaghetti strap or strapless tops/dresses are not allowed unless you are wearing a sweater over the dress.

If you are unsure if your outfit is appropriate, please see Mr. Anderson or Ms. Wych BEFORE the day of the concert!!
