Policies and Procedures

Attendance: Choir members must consistently attend rehearsals to sing in performances. Youth Chorus members may miss a maximum of two rehearsals during a semester (September to December or January to May). Extra makeup rehearsals are provided monthly to make up absences at regular Monday rehearsals. Choir members must make a year-long commitment to the choir. Tuition payments will NOT be suspended or refunded if choir members drop mid-year (barring medical issues or other extenuating circumstances.)
At-Home Practice: Choir members are expected to practice at home (with the aid of customized practice tracks included in tuition) in order to learn all of the required repertoire. As a guideline, choir members should expect to practice 10 minutes per day but may be asked to do more at the director’s discretion.


Tuition and Fees

Tuition includes sheet music, practice tracks, and other supplies needed. There is no separate fee for materials.
Scholarships are available for talent merit and/or financial need. The scholarship application is part of the registration form.

New Youth Chorus members should expect to pay approximately $250 for concert attire and a T-shirt/jacket for tour. Junior Choir, Children’s Choir, and Treble Choir members will need to pay about $30 for concert attire.
