Does anyone have a written policy pertaining to concert makeup and jewelry? I’m looking for a nice way to say “natural looking makeup, but applied so it’s visible under stage lighting”. (or did i just achieve that?) Also, I plan to say no necklaces, but what’s everyone’s policy on earnings? I have an adult community chorus that all wear the exact same outfit…I just need to address jewelry and make-up!
Thanks for your suggestions!

We have a “jewelry packet” that we require our ladies to buy (very cheap) that includes a mandatory necklace. We have no policy on earrings. On the subject of makeup, if you want the ladies to look natural under stage lighting, you need to bite the bullet and ask them for streetwalker makeup<grin>, e.g., wildly overdone. Anything less will wash out under stage lighting.

Makeup policy? Seriously?
I’m 77, have sung in two community choruses over the years, under at least a dozen conductors, and the question of makeup has never been mentioned. And since I stopped wearing makeup in 1963, if makeup were insisted upon I’d be looking for a new chorus to sing with.
As for jewelry, the dress code for my current chorus has this to say:
“Modest jewelry (small necklaces/earrings) “
