This form is used to order uniform pieces for your singer/s. For parents of new singers: you can simply check the box to order a full uniform. However, if you have purchased a used item, you can order the other items individually. For parents of returning singers: order the individual pieces that you need for each singer you have in GCC.

Vests and cummerbunds are the property of the Georgia Children’s Chorus and are rented to singers. The tux shirts, Chorus pins and cummerbunds or vests will be ordered for all members. Girls will also have their pants ordered for them. Boys wear their own black dress pants. We occasionally have some used attire in stock. Those may be available to members for a reduced price.
