Upcoming Concert Reminders

Great Rehearsal Today!

Just a few important items:

Upcoming Concert:

Saturday, November 22, 3:00 to 4:30 pm
Bear River High School Auditorium, 1450 S Main, Garland (near Tremonton)
Admission is free (thanks to Classical Strings www.classicalstrings.net and Grover Wilhelmsen for being a returning sponsor!)

The rehearsal schedule that day is as follows: 
11 am to 1:15 pm, rehearsal on stage
PLEASE come early if you can. It's not an easy auditorium to set up.

A separate email was sent a few minutes ago regarding a meal for the break while NUYCO rehearses. 

Concert Dress:
  • Male: Black tux or equivalent suit, white dress shirt, black bow tie, black socks, black shoes. 
  • Female: Black dress, formal trouser suit, or blouse & skirt, midriff covered, conservative neckline, skirts & dresses at least tea-length, slits no higher than knee, black stockings, black shoes, accessories & trim in black.
​Ladies, please respect the fact that audience is not interested in being distracted by your knees! Tea-length means between knee and ankle. 

I found this little write-up from Macy's website rather entertaining:
Historically, a tea length dress was one that was perfect for tea time. Not as long or as ornate as an evening dress, but still brimming with class and sophistication. Ninety years ago, Emily Post described it as "a hybrid between a wrapper and a ball dress. It has a train and usually long flowing sleeves; is made of rather gorgeous materials and goes on easily, and its chief use is not for wear at the tea table so much as for dinner alone with one's family."
By definition a "tea length" dress is one that falls near the bottom of the calf, about two inches above the ankle. However, today, as dresses have become shorter, the definition of "tea length" has changed. If you are looking for a tea length dress today, you are more likely to find a hemline that falls just below the knee. Now, any dress with a hemline that falls somewhere between the bottom of the knee and the ankle can be considered "tea length." Modern tea length dresses are still sophisticated, but show just the right amount of leg for the modern woman. (http://www1.macys.com/cms/slp/2/Tea-Length-Dresses)

​I'm just looking for longer than knee length when seated, something comfortable that you don't have to fight with to play your instrument.​

Thanks for reading!

Let me know if you have any questions.

PS I recently misprinted the date for Abravanel Hall. It's March 2, a Monday.

Did you know the website is a blog? All group emails are posted to the blog, which is totally searchable! Check it out...
