  • Proper dressware that is also practical?

    Hello all, I'm a 14 year old girl, having only recently begun to take organ. Having mastered a piece of sufficient level to be played in church, I will soon be playing at a Catholic mass for prelude. There are no choir robes of any sort, and I was wondering what is both practical for playing the pedals, but at the same time is not too dressed down. A shorter skirt seems out of the question, but a long one or dress seems that it would restrict leg movement. Is there no other option besides pants? </p>

    Dressy pants are fine; a skirtis alsofine if it is knee-length or slighly longer.</P>

      While my wife is not an organist, in the symphony she has chosen black pants which are made of material that is quite flowing (silk-like), and appears dress-like unless viewed straight on. This allows for controlling the direction of the "hang" with the legs, as well as preserving the appearance of a full-length orchestra gown. She tells me that it is two layers. The first layer is the actual pants, and the second layer is the semi-transparent material which gives the illusion of being a dress. She says she purchased hers too long, but varying lengths should be available.</P>

      Hope this helps.</P>
