Clothing Options

Friends of Odle Music has a concert attire recycling program. Often our students wear their concert clothing only a few times before outgrowing them. If purchasing the appropriate concert attire is not within your family's budget, please speak with Mr. Roberts, or email friends@odlemusic.org. We have a supply of clothing that older students have outgrown and donated.
