I like it...but it doesn't seem right to steal a design from another choir...

LOL - Take any ideas you like!

In the shirt design, I had a few criteria.

First, I wanted the the shirt to double as a "casual performance uniform," to be paired with either black or khaki slacks. Therefore, I wanted the shirt's front design to be artsy and sleek, rather than "beachy" and rowdy. I think the designer came up with a nice front that stayed elegant but still with some pizazz.

My second criteria was a marketing one. We have a "t-shirt" day once a week during the semester, where we encourage all our singers to wear the shirt to school that day, and to wear it all day longer. The idea is that they will be advertising choir on campus throughout the school day, every week during the semester. I therefore wanted a bold message on the back, encouraging others to "join us." This was especially important on the back of shirt, since during academic classes there will be other students staring at the back of our singers during the entire period. Why not some forced in-class advertising?! So, our "Come sing with us!" statement high on the back of the shirt.

Stay creative, and feel free to improve on our ideas! Sharing is a good thing.

Oh yes, and our designer also designed another shirt with a completely different look, this for a community chorus geared towards high school students. The shirt concept design is at http://etx-youthchorus.blogspot.com

I like it, too. As long as we could add those sponser names we were talking about, I think it's great.

Oh no, I think it needs to have a bass clef rather than a treble clef...because we all know that the bass clef is dominant over any other clef imagined!

Bass Clef > Any other Clef.

My personal favorite choral tee was one shamelessly sported by "Dr." Herbert V.R.P. Jones. It said,
"Sometimes B#. Never Bb. Always B-natural." CLASSIC!
