    what to wear at a performance

       

     

    For all of our performances, we'll be wearing "Choir Blue”. See table below.

     

     

    Male

    Female

    Topside

    Navy Blue (for USN or USCG) or Red (for USMC) Polo shirt with embroidered insignia*

    Navy Blue (for USN or USCG) or Red (for USMC) Polo shirt with embroidered insignia*

    Below Decks

    Black trousers (black belt if trousers have belt loops), no jeans

    Black slacks or skirt (the latter hemmed at or just below the knee)

    Anchor

    Black socks and shoes, no clunky boots or athletics shoes unless you have a medical issue requiring same

    Black pumps or flats with no bling

     

    Because we have many performances lined up so far, please bring at least two sets of shirts and trousers with you. We always want to keep a professional and consistent appearance when we perform. So no overgarments (such as jackets or sweaters) are to be worn during the performances. Friendly reminder: If you wear a T-shirt underneath your polo, make sure it does not show (a V-neck).  Officers do not dress with their underwear showing!

    OUR VENDOR FOR OUR SHIRTS WILL BE THE NAVAL AVIATION MUSEUM SHIP’S STORE for a consistent and professional appearance. They sell our polo shirt with insignia*. Order ASAP. If they’re out of stock in your color or size, there may be a 3-week delay.

    *  Typically, pilot or NFO wings. Call 800-247-6289,  If you have different wings, email execdirect@navavalumchoir.org

    • Pilot wings: SKU 1973-1 NFO wings: SKU 2015-1: Here’s a link to NFO shirt and the NA wings.
    • Sizes tend to run slightly larger, i.e., an XL from the Museum will be a little larger than an XL you buy at national retail stores like Kohl’s

    Very reluctantly, the Choir Executive Committee made the decision to cancel our participation for SF Fleet Week 2021. In the recent weeks, we lost about 1/3 of the originally committed participants due to Covid protocol changes and mask requirements in the San Francisco Bay area. This decision was not made lightly. We wanted so much to have a reunion this year after such a long wait, but circumstances that were out of our control have changed. Musically, the directors made the best decision they could.

    The committee thinks that with the world class performance venues like the Herbst Theatre and St Ignatius Chapel and the many vacation-type opportunities that our time and resources would be better spent in participating in the 2022 San Francisco Fleet Week. We hope you will be available to join us!
