What to Wear to a Concert
Alas, there is no simple answer to the question of what to wear to a concert, because every concert has its own atmosphere and style. Opening night at the opera might require formal dress, but most concerts are far less formal. At some you'll be out of place if you dress up too much!
Usually you can wear whatever you want. There will be lots of people dressed in all manner of clothes, so you'll fit in no matter what. If you are worried, put on what you would wear to a business meeting or, better yet, to a wedding -- after all, a concert is a kind of celebration, so wear something festive!
To get more specific wardrobe advice, ask around, or call the organization and ask what people tend to wear.
Because concerts squeeze lots of people into one room, it's best not to wear strong fragrances.
Many organizations offer lectures immediately before their concerts. These "preconcert lectures" include information and insights about the composers and the pieces, along with some musical examples. You may also hear from performers and composers themselves. Call the organization to find out about preconcert lectures.
