Given that it’s the choir’s five year anniversary this year, we have decided we would like to add to the celebrations by getting some new uniform for the summer concert. We currently have two uniforms – one smart and one casual. Our casual look is the blue polo shirts embroidered with the choir logo. Our smart look consists of all black (your choice what to wear) and then a turquoise fabric flower, which brings us all together. So, we would like to update our smart look with a new accessory. For the ladies we are proposing a light chiffon scarf – colour to be decided and for the gents – ties in a matching colour. So question 1:
- Do you like the idea of a scarf/tie? If not, then please suggest something better, and preferably with examples – it’s not always easy to actually source people’s suggestions.
The cost of getting something new is realistically looking like £5-6 per person. We have some money left from the voluntary subscriptions this year to subsidise this cost, however no where near enough to pay for them outright. We would like to get members views on contributing £4-£5 each to the cost of getting something new. So question 2:
- Would you be happy to contribute towards a new accessory?
As always, this would be voluntary and if someone is unable to afford this, then the choir can cover the costs. Our aim is to try and make the choir as accessible as possible for everyone, regardless of circumstance.
Please let us know your thoughts by 9 June 2013. If you would prefer to email your comments to me privately, then please do so.
