Photography & Videography:

Proper attire shows respect to your audience, as well as to yourself, and what you have accomplished!   Just follow the basic guidelines to make sure you choose an appropriate outfit.  While this is not a strict ‘formal’ event, let’s keep it classy 😉

  • Ladies: Dress pants & blouse, skirt or dress and dress shoes.
  • Gents: Collared shirts (make sure you are comfortable!) and slacks.  Ties/Jackets are not required, but definitely appropriate 🙂


NO Flip-flops
NO Sneakers / Athletic footwear
NO Platform/very high heels (don’t want to fall on stage!!)
NO Jeans / Shorts
NO Dangling/Jingling Jewelry


Pianists/wear pedal-appropriate shoes: Avoid high heels, slippery soles, or boots that might constrict your ankles.

Consider your hairstyle: Whether you’re male or female, make sure long hair won’t block your view of your instrument or music. (or your face in photos!)

Avoid Surprises! Practice in your recital clothes at least once before your performance date, and always choose clothes in which you’ll feel comfortable. 🙂
