The kids are ready to perform for the public...I cant wait for you to hear them! The attire for BOTH the morning and evening performance will be the jazz band dress shirt and tie that will be handed out next week in rehearsal. Each performer will also need to provide their own black dress pants and black shoes. Girls are allowed to wear black leggings if they wish.
