CONCERT DRESS CODE
WHY WE HAVE A DRESS CODE FOR PERFORMANCES
A dress code enables the orchestra to match visually the artistic unity and professionalism that it strives to convey musically in performance.

The atrium is a busy place before the NYS Concerts. Please read thoroughly, you don't want to miss out on anything.
Boutique
The NYS Boutique will be open from 2 to 3 pm and for 30 minutes after the concert.

You will find NYS apparel, musical ornaments & jewelry, coffee mugs, water bottles and more. Especially popular is the NYS tote bag & new dark gray sweatshirt.

Don't miss this opportunity to do your holiday shopping. The boutique will NOT be opened during December.

Thank you for supporting NYS!
Youth Committee Food Drive

The holidays are fast approaching and many people in southern Connecticut will be going hungry. NYS will be holding a food drive this week-end to benefit Person to Person. Please bring your donation of non-perishable food items to your child’s rehearsal or the November Concert. There will be a table set up in the lobby of City Hall.

Thank you for your generosity for those in need!

And don't forget to check your name off the roster. The orchestra with the highest percent of participation wins a special snack in December.
