What Shall I Wear!?

Lassiter Chorus, ready to perform for nearly any situation, uses several performance outfits. In each situation, I have tried to minimize the cost as much as possible.

Remember, all checks should be made payable to LCBA (Lassiter Chorus Booster Association).

Formal Performance Attire
Girls: Lieder dress with white front panel + necklace ($70, includes shipping) paired with closed-toed, reasonably heeled, black dress shoes.
Boys: Standard black tuxedo (King Tux Rental offers a Lassiter Chorus discount) paired with black dress shoes (not necessarily patent leather). We will not use the wingtip collar or bow ties, but a more standard collar for a long dress tie that is being made specifically for Lassiter Chorus. Tom from King Tux came out and measured our guys. Cost for tux and shirt is $100. Boys who already have a tux will only need the new shirt ($20). LCBA will purchase and own the ties.

Casual Performance Attire
For both boys and girls, the chorus polo ($20) will be used sometime with jeans and other times with black slacks.

Impromptu (around school) Performances
The chorus T-shirt for the year for everyone is free with paid LCBA membership ($10 otherwise)

Summary
Girls: dress+necklace $70, necklace only $8
Boys: tux and tux shirt $100, tux shirt only $20
Both: polo $20, 2014-15 chorus T-shirt $10 (free with paid LCBA membership)

Congratulations to Valedictorian Savanah Jackle!

We are so proud that one of our very own is again the Lassiter Valedictorian.  Following in the footsteps of Nathan Hipsman, 2008 Valedictorian and current doctoral candidate at Harvard University, Savanah Jackle, Chorus President of 2013-2014, worked diligently, took a rigorous course of study, shared her musical gifts with her classmates, and simply led by example.

Saying Savanah accomplished a lot during her Senior year would be an understatement. Not only did she serve as the Lassiter Chorus President but also arranged and conducted one the selections for Lassiter Ladies that was performed on the Spring Concert, all while serving as writer and host for the show.

Savanah also won a $500 LCBA Chorus Scholarship.  In her essay, Savanah described the impact Lassiter Chorus had on her: 

I have become more outgoing and confident because Dr. Williams and all the students in that room make me feel like I can do anything I set my mind to.  With Chorus it is not just a class; it is truly a family. Chorus has given me a reason to be excited to come to school each and every day of my high school career.  Chorus has taught me how to embrace the future.  I know there will be obstacles I have to fight my way through but in the end it will all be worth it.  Choral music became important to me when I realized how truly amazing it is.  Some of the hardest pieces have been my favorites because I truly appreciate the texts, rhythms and notes…and finally, regarding the President Office….I have helped make important decisions to make this year the best yet.  I have proudly been a role model for all underclassmen in my academics, social life, and chorus life!

 

Thank you, Savanah, for all you have done. Lassiter Chorus applauds you and your work!Image
