It is as important to the team effort to appear professional and artistic as it is to sound professional and artistic.  Upon arrival at a concert venue, all singers should be clean and well groomed with no obvious make-up, hair accessories, or hair colorsHair clips that match the color of the hair are permitted and only natural hair colors are permitted for performances.  Jewelry, earrings (except earring studs) and other accessories will not be permitted.  If a tie is not on, the singer may borrow one from the choir.  If all ties are already on loan, the child will not be allowed to perform in the concert.  Perfume is not allowed because it can potentially cause allergic reactions in other singers.  If a singer does not dress properly, he/she may be excluded from the performance.

At the beginning of the season, each choir member will receive a free black t-shirt with CYC logo. We are retiring the formal plaid uniforms for Piccolo Coro, Vivace, and Allegro Choirs, but keeping formal uniforms for Con Brio, Voci and Bel Canto. If the singer does not already have a CYC rainbow tie-dye t-shirt they will need to purchase that for informal appearances/events.  Uniform t-shirts are always in stock through the CYC Office and will be available for sale at the Parent Meetings and first rehearsals or by email request to Kathleen Riemenschnieder: and turning in payment to the CYC Office. Unless otherwise specified, the CYC t-shirts are to be worn with plain black pants, black socks and dress shoes for boys and black flats for girls.

*Members are responsible for ordering their own uniforms by dealing directly with the uniform company.
