May 13, 2008 at 5:03 AMMy community orchestra is doing a Pirate concert in a few weeks. There has been much debate and discussion on how much we may or may not diverge from our dress-code.
Tonight we were delivered the final verdict. ONE Pirate related accessory will be permitted. Said accessory shall not interfere with our ability to play our instrument (that rules out eye patches, or hooks on the hand - except for maybe our triangle player). Hats are permitted if they do not interfere with the people behind you from seeing the conductor. We were instructed to bring in our Pirate accessory during "dress" rehearsal to make sure it will not interfere with our playing or those around us.
Now I'm faced with a dilema. What should I choose as my Pirate accessory? I have no hat, and no time to shop for one. I do have a few colorful scarves that could be used in some way. What to do? Arrrrrrrrgh!
Failing that, a cutlass often works well.
No bright ideas from here, but I can recommend this shop here in my hometown (they ship):
Bernadette - I like the scarf & bead idea!
All, here is the link to the concert flier: http://www.hillsborosymphony.org/
I'm sure someone will be taking pics and posting them on the orchestra web-site. When they are, I'll let everyone know. :)
