Fashion News:

Dresses Have Arrived!! If you ordered an HSC dress in January, please plan to pick it up NEXT WEEK (March 4). You will need to bring the second half of the payment at this time, a check for $100 payable to HSC. Chorus jewelry will also be available for purchase (an additional $25).

And speaking of dresses: "There must be a better/faster/cheaper way." (But IS there??) We are nearing the end of the contract with our dress maker, and are looking into alternatives. We need help on this, particularly from women who know something about dressmaking and dressmakers, and/or from those who are willing to help do some research into other ways of doing things. If you can help with this, please contact Wardrobe Mistress Patsy Wilson: scottypmw @ aol.com

(Note: we are NOT considering changing the dress design at this point.)

Women: If you need to borrow a dress for Rachmaninoff, please let
Wardrobe Mistress Patsy Wilson know. Speak to her tonight or e-mail her at scottypmw @ aol.com .

Men: Do you need an HSC tie for our Sunday afternoon performance of
Rachmaninoff? Please see Lee Williams (T2) so he knows who needs these. We have a few left now, the rest will be available in a couple weeks. Ties cost $25.
