Dress Codes The orchestra performs in a range of settings and for events which call for the wearing of different clothes by players. The following table is intended to provide an indication to players. Underlying all the descriptions however is the goal that when on stage we look professional and that there is nothing to distract the audience’s attention from the performance.
