Why not ask the person organizing the recital? He/she should know what other performers have been wearing. My chorus just switched from "concert dress" (tuxedo / formal shirt / formal pants) to "black shirt, no tie, black pants"

With the pedal rod disconnected and the action in situ, slide you hand down to the damper lift arm and check there is a little movement slack before the dampers start to lift. If there is slack and all the dampers start to lift more or less at the sa

Another vote for "slow down, until you can play it correctly! And then speed up _gradually_." And one more technique: Take two small bowls, and put them on (or next to) the piano. Put 5 beans (for amateurs) or 10 beans (for professional

It's nothing to do with dampers themselves .... it's merely that the hammer return springs are attached to the damper slap rail for convenience.
