Tour Wardrobe
Please stop by today or tomorrow to pick up your tour wardrobe (singers, staff and chaperones).

We are here today (Monday) from 7:30am to 5pm and tomorrow (Tuesday) from 9am to 5pm.  All wardrobe needs to be picked up by the end of the day on Tuesday.

  1. At home, please check that you have all required wardrobe items: five tour T-shirts; two polos; one track jacket (in addition to any supplemental pieces your family ordered). Singers only: Please try on your concert wardrobe and confirm that between what you told us you already own or would provide and what is in your garment bag you have two Oxford shirts, one blue blazer, one pair of khaki trousers, and one boychoir tie that fit.
  2. If you have any issues with your wardrobe please let us know ASAP.
  3. All wardrobe items should be neatly labeled with the tour participant's name. A fine point Sharpie works well for this. This will help if any items end up in the laundry during the tour. This includes the white Oxford shirts for singers--please label all items at the neck or waist or on a tag. Blazers do NOT need to be labeled.
  4. A tour sling sack and a red Gateway luggage tag are also included. Please use this luggage tag for your checked item on travel day. We have a few extras--please let us know if you need more than one.
  5. Please review the packing list and ask questions if anything is unclear.

Passports and Consent to Travel Forms
  1. Please double-check your Gateway registration to make certain that the passport you are carrying on travel day corresponds exactly to the passport number you entered on your Gateway registration. (If you renewed a passport, you received a new number.) Gateway will use this information to register our group with the State Department prior to departure. Please double-check this TODAY.
  2. Please double-check that your passport is signed. (We noticed several unsigned passports when scanning.)
  3. Consent to Travel forms are inside your garment bag. Please keep this form with your passport so it's ready on travel day.
