Regular rehearsals occur weekly with make-up dates scheduled when observed holiday conflicts arise. Additional rehearsals are scheduled as performance dates approach. Social events, fundraising events and additional community performance opportunities are also available. Choir members will be notified in advance of all schedule updates via email, TeamSnap, and our website’s singer portal.
Tuition for the entire season is $750.00. Tuition represents only a fraction of the actual per-singer cost of the program. The balance is made up with fundraising activities, donations, and performance revenues. In addition, there is a $60 non-refundable registration fee.
Young Singers is a not-for-profit organization which relies on fundraising, community support and tuition in order to provide services to the community. Your financial commitment is, therefore, vital to the success of the organization.
All fees paid to Young Singers are non-refundable, in whole or in part, and are non-transferrable. Tuition for the year is due in full, even if your child drops out of the program or is removed at any time during the year.
All choir members wear a uniform. Uniform costs will be given upon acceptance and range from $65 - $150 depending on the choir.
In addition, we ask that each parent volunteer his or her talent, time and resources to the extent that each is able. Each family is requested to donate at least 6 hours per singer during the course of the season. A fundraising commitment is required as well.
Need-based financial assistance is available for eligible families. Financial assistance awards are limited to the funds available each year. Financial assistance applications are reviewed in confidence and need-based awards are granted at the discretion of the review committee and is subject to fund availability. Anonymity of the applicant and confidentiality of financial information are maintained throughout the review process and thereafter.
After your singer has been accepted into Young Singers, you will be provided with information on how to apply for financial aid.
For more information about financial aid, please contact our office at (561) 651-4429.
Young Singers could not exist without the active involvement and participation of the parents. As a not-for-profit organization, we are heavily dependent upon the efforts of parents to assist with operations of fundraising activities. We ask that each parent volunteer his or her time, talent, and resources to the extent that each is able. Each family is requested to donate at least 6 hours of time per singer during the season. You will be notified at parent meetings, via email, and at rehearsals about volunteer opportunities.
Communication between Young Singers and the parents is very important. Parents are urged to attend all Parent Meetings. These meetings are scheduled periodically throughout the year to keep parents advised of performances, schedule changes, tour updates, volunteer opportunities, fundraisers, and other important choir news.
In addition, YSPB news and updates are sent to the parents every week via e-mail. In order to ensure that you receive all correspondence, please keep the office informed of any change in your e-mail address. These changes can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
