Although orchestra students look super spiffy in tuxedo’s during performances, that look comes at a cost of about $275 per student. And since students are still growing, this is a tough investment to make considering they might not even fit the tuxedo for the entire year!
In an effort to help reduce this cost, PLUS be a fundraiser for the orchestra, we are starting an Orchestra Tuxedo Recycle Program.
- We will collect gently used orchestra tuxedo clothing (pants, jackets, vests, shirts, bow ties and dress shoes).
- The donated clothing will be professionally cleaned and inventoried.
- About one month before each performing event, all clothing will be made available for purchase at a fraction of the cost of a new tuxedo.
- All proceeds will go to the DHS-Holmes Orchestra Booster Program.
The first collection will be during our December 14 Winter Concert in the front lobby of Brunelle Hall at the program table. Spread the word—especially to alumni orchestra families!
