Apparel (2020-2021)

Given the pandemic’s impact and current distance learning status, each student is required only to have an orchestra t-shirt at this time. All other apparel is currently optional. Once in-person classes and orchestra concerts resume, students will perform in the black orchestra polo shirt for informal performances (typically the fall concert) and formalwear for District Assessments and other concerts.

Spirit Wear:

The required orchestra t-shirt, as well as other spirit wear items including the orchestra polo shirts, are currently available for purchase through September 30th.  Visit the store here. All spirit wear items will be bulk delivered and our Spirit Wear Coordinator will then make arrangements for delivery to student residences or make other arrangements for pickup.  All students eligible for FCPS financial assistance, please email Doc and provide your name, grade, and preferred t-shirt size as LOS will cover the cost of your t-shirt.  Please email Spirit Wear Coordinator Lucia Sugianto with any additional questions at

Once In-Person Classes and Concerts Resume:

Once in-person classes and concerts resume, each Langley High School Orchestra student will be required to obtain formal concert apparel: either a black tuxedo with white tux shirt, or a floor length dress with black velvet bodice and green taffeta skirt. In addition, each student is required to have a black polo shirt and black t-shirt with the LHS Orchestra Logo for casual performances, events, fundraisers, and on orchestra trips. Students eligible for FCPS financial assistance should contact Doc to discuss assistance for Langley Orchestra apparel.
