Date of Performance: Saturday 13 April 2024

Having a dress code provides a polished and uniform look for the orchestra that does not draw attention to individuals.

Women: Black pants or skirt below the knee with black stockings; black short-sleeved / three quarter / long-sleeved top; or black dress below the knee with black stockings. No sparkles / cleavage. Black shoes.
