What to wear
Plan to dress in something as close as possible to concert black for the afternoon concert—if you still have your choir dress and tux, you are welcome to use that. Alternative dress for tenors and basses could be black pants/jacket (or suit) and white shirt with regular black tie or bow tie. Alternative dress for sopranos and altos could be another long black dress or long skirt or black pants with black blouse/shirt. Black shoes for all, of course! Please bring a black folder for your music. The party afterwards is definitely informal.

Please email our choral librarians at CFPA.Choral.Library@wwu.edu so we know how many people to expect at the concert and party. Feel free to email Leslie.Guelker-Cone@wwu.edu if you have questions or need more information.

Wishing you all the best and hoping to see you in June.
