Choir Costume Fitting Appointments

Hello Choir Families!

My name is Mrs. Harmeyer and I have met some of you when I helped with the costumes this past school year. For those of you who are NEW…WELCOME to a great (and sometimes wild) adventure! I have stepped in to coordinate costumes for the GHS choirs for the 2019-2020 school year. I wanted to let you know that a fitting appointment calendar has been created and is open for you to sign up for an appointment. 

ALL CHOIR MEMBERS (INCLUDING RETURNING MEMBERS) NEED TO HAVE A FITTING.  

FITTING DATES: Monday, August 5, 2019 through Friday August 9, 2019. 

FITTING LOCATION: 621 N. Cullen Ave., Glendora, CA. If you have any problems getting there or arriving on time, please call or text our hostess Mrs. Govea at 626-588-7076.

ALL LADIES: 

When you come to your fitting, please DO wear the appropriate undergarments that you might wear with your costume. NO sports bras please.

ILLUMINATION AND SILHOUETTE LADIES should NOT sign up for fittings on Wednesday through Friday between 9:00 am -12:00 pm, plus travel time, as you will be attending Choir Camp. 

ROYAL STEWART LADIES should NOT sign up for fittings on Wednesday through Friday between 12:30- 3:30 pm, plus travel time, as you will be attending Choir Camp.

ROYAL STEWART MEN: 

Due to my costume team volunteer’s limitations, I have scheduled fittings for Gentleman on Wednesday and Thursday MORNINGS ONLY from 8:40-11:40. I apologize for the possible inconvenience. Please note that sometime soon after choir camp, we will meet with the tux representative to EITHER ensure your tux pants and jacket still fit correctly or determine if a new one is needed OR fit you for your first tux. I hope to give you more information about this at your fitting appointment.

ALL RETURNING CHOIR MEMBERS:

To be ready for your fitting appointment, please do the following AHEAD of time:

  • Check your choir jacket, garment bag, and duffle bag to make sure they are in good working order. If they are damaged or no longer fit, you will need to bring the item with you to your fitting to have it repaired or replaced.
  • Bring your jazz and/or character shoes with you to your fitting appointment. We will check for their size and condition to determine if you need a replacement pair. Ladies will need to try on long black skirts with your black heels on.
  • Ladies: DO wear the appropriate undergarments that you might wear with your costume.

VOLUNTEER STILL NEEDED:

  • I hope to have a group of assistants helping me (both the week of fittings and throughout the school year). I would love to welcome members to this team. I do need a lot of organizational assistants, people who could iron costumes, and perhaps a few of you who can sew.  If you are interested, please feel free to email or text me and we can talk about your skills and availability. Thank you! 

I am looking forward to seeing you in August! If you are unavailable to come for a fitting during these scheduled times, please email me or text me directly to schedule your fitting.

Sincerely,

Sheli Harmeyer, and the costume team
