    MALE UNIFORM FITTINGS THIS WEEK

    Our performing ensembles are outfitted in tuxedos and gowns. The professional look adds a great deal to our performances and is mostly subsidized by the school department.
     
    Males in our groups (Band, Concert Chorus, Jazz Band, and Select Choir) are to visit Our Place for Tuxedos and Uniforms by Friday, November 10th for their free fitting of the tuxedo.
     
    Our Place for Tuxedos & Uniforms
    2044 Smith Street
    North Providence, RI 02911
    401-231-2370
     
    The store is open Monday - Friday from 10:00am until 8:00pm and on Saturday from 10:00am until 5:00pm.
     
    Our young men also need the "shirt combo" from Our Place".  A new set costs $30 and includes:
    Tux Shirt
    Bow Tie
    Cummerbund, &
    Black Buttons.
     
    The shirt combo does NOT NEED to be purchased at the fitting, but is a part of the required uniform. If a financial situation does not allow a student to meet this obligation, they must see the director immediately so that arrangements can be made to accommodate the student.
     
    Ladies will be fitted in school.
    Ladies and gentlemen must wear black dressed shoes.
    Please contact Mr. Gingras or Mr. Lamoureux with questions or for help.
