I've seen female violinists mostly in gowns, the males in dark suits or our local barong tagalog (native formal shirt) and dark slacks. Rarely have I seen any perform in jeans. Is the violin such a formal instrument that requires a formal outfit, or do violinists simply play better when dressed to the nines? Is there an unwritten rule about violin dressing?
