Dress code for chamber groups

Chamber Groups will normally wear the same concert dress as they would for orchestra concerts (please see 'dress code for orchestras' above). As a general rule this means older students wear all black/younger students wear black and white. However, groups wishing to wear something different for their performance should first discuss this with their tutor, who will then liaise with the RCMJD Performance Manager.
