2. How Much Does It Cost?
The Audition Fee is $30 and is non-refundable. Annual Tuition costs $800 per student. A $300 deposit is due upon acceptance.
The remainding balance of $500 must be paid in full at the first rehearsal.
Alternatively, the $500 balance may be split into two payments of $250,
with the first payment due at the first rehearsal, and the second due on November 4th, 2018
This includes tuition for the entire season, concert tickets and CDs for each of the concerts.
Additional payment plans can be arranged with the orchestra manager as needed.
3. Are there any other costs or requirements?
Parents are required to volunteer with any aspect of the orchestra program they choose.
If their schedules cannot accommodate this requirement, they can make a donation of $100(due at 1st rehearsal) to the GYO instead.
All parents are also expected to help in some way with the Silent Auctions prior to each concert.
4. If I Cannot Afford It, What Can I Do?
There are some scholarships available. Please check the box on the application form that asks if you are interested in a scholarship.
Scholarships are awarded on a need basis and occasionally on a merit basis.
Both parent's current Federal and State tax returns are required and due with the application on or before the first rehearsal.
