We are committed to providing all students in our community with the same exceptional experience no matter their financial means. Due to rising costs of print materials, sheet music, and other operating costs, we have made the decision to raise our base tuition cost by $25 for the '23-'24 season. To continue to create a more accessible orchestra and community, we are still offering students the chance to pay what they can afford. Tuition covers venue costs, sectionals, rehearsals, concerts, and masterclasses.
Parents and students will be able to decide the suitable way to pay the YYSO's suggested tuition cost.
Suggested YYSO Tuition Rate - This option will allow you to pay the full suggested tuition rate of $200.00.
“Pay what you can” – You can choose the amount you can contribute. It can be greater or less than the YYSO's suggested tuition price. If additional tuition assistance is needed, please contact email@example.com to inquire about a scholarship.
Beginning in the ’23 – ’24 season, there will be an additional non-refundable audition fee - $10 if paid before or on the day of auditions and $20 if paid thereafter.
If the student does not obtain a seat in the orchestra, tuition will be refunded, less the audition fee.
Note: It is preferred that all fees (audition + tuition) be paid at the time of auditions.
Tuition payments may be submitted online through PayPal, or in the form of check or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover). Please be sure to include the YYSO member's full name (first and last) on a check or Paypal payment. Any bank fees resulting from a returned check are the responsibility of the paying party.
Full tuition payments must be submitted by the date of the first rehearsal. If this presents a hardship, payment plans, and tuition assistance are available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Members will not be permitted to attend rehearsal without a paid tuition payment.
