October 8 - November 30 

Last spring, we asked freshmen, sophomores and juniors to hold on to their concert uniforms (skirts and tuxedos) through the summer. 

Due to the restrictions and uncertainty we have with coronavirus, the Performing Arts Department has decided to collect all outstanding uniforms this fall. The procedure to return student tuxedos and skirts is as follows:

Return Dates:
October 8 – November 30

Return Location:
Verlare Cleaners - 104 W. Vallette Street, Elmhurst

Return Procedure:
Tuxedo-wearers return jackets and pants (no bow ties, no dress shirts). Be sure to check all pockets. Be sure that the pants being returned are tuxedo pants which have a satin ribbon that runs down the side of each pant leg.

Skirt-wearers return skirts only (no tops).

Please return your tuxedo or skirt directly to Velare Cleaners. Identify yourself as a York band/orchestra student. Verlare has a list of all students – please make sure you cross your name off of that list to ensure you record your return.

If a student is unable to return their band or orchestra tuxedo/skirt directly to Verlare Cleaners, they may bring their concert uniform to York during the drop-off dates. There will be a large bin for drop-offs in the band room. There will be a list of student names near the bin. Any student returning uniforms at York must cross their name off the list, or let their band or orchestra teacher know so we can record the return.

Failing to return a uniform by November 30 could result in a replacement fee. See the "What if I lose my uniform" section below for more information.

If you have any questions or are unable to return your band or orchestra uniform to either location, please contact Denise Steinbrecher.


Please contact Denise Steinbrecher if you have any questions about formal band and orchestra uniforms.

THANK YOU to our AMAZING volunteers!!! 

Thank you to the many volunteers needed to help distribute tuxedos and skirts to our band and orchestra students. Every year this is a BIG undertaking as we outfitted 330 students! We could not have done this without you!!
