You will all need some money for lunch and dinner, your music, your instrument and dress clothes. Due to the fact there are no rooms to change at, you can bring street clothes to rehearse in and change before concert in a bathroom....but most just stay dressed up all day.
If anyone has any questions, please contact me. It looks like it is going to be a fun day!!
