The UNIFORMS are only to be worn for concerts unless other instructions are given (e.g. for a particular occasion or tour). This is to ensure that, as far as possible, the Choir will look the same i.e. UNIFORM. Members may wear their uniform to local concerts but must change when the concert is over.
Those Members who find difficulty in changing trousers for medical reasons, and these members only, may continue to wear them to and after concerts - but not their jackets or ties. The same applies to these members when traveling long distance by coach.
When standing in Concerts, and in Rehearsals, Choristers should stand with their hands loosely to their sides (not clutched in front, behind or hands in pockets) and ensure that Dress Jacket button is done up. When sitting undo the button so that you are relaxed when sitting and there is a uniformed appearance to the audience. Legs should not be crossed when sitting nor arms folded across the chest but resting lightly on the knees. Please take pride in your Choir and your appearance when in uniform in public.
