Bach’s Passion –

“Messiah” –Easter Sunday 

On Performance Days, the Sections Secretaries will be scrutinizing each Chorus member’s attire.  They have the authority to ask you to go home and change, or not perform at all, if your attire does not meet these guidelines.  


WHY DO WE HAVE A DRESS CODE?

To put our best, most professional ‘face’ on our performances, a large group’s attire must be as unified as possible.   Glittering jewelry, lots of exposed skin, or noticeable variations in clothing actually distract an audience from the music, and the message, of the performance.  We strive to take away as many distractions as possible, so each audience member can get the utmost out of every performance.   Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

Thank you for everything you do to make each Messiah season a true Hallelujah!
