TUITION AND FEES
The CYSO is a nonprofit organization offering professionaly directed orchestral experience to school-age musicians.
Major funding is provided by businesses, foundations, government, and parents.
The CYSO offers financial aid for qualifying families. To apply, email Michelle Orman at with the musician's name, musician's orchestra assignment, amount you're requesting, and the reason for financial hardship. Requests must be received by August 1st.
Payment plans are also available for economically stressed families. To apply for a payment plan please contact Accounts Manager Cedra Kuehn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT PROGRAM
The CYSO depends on parental involvement for its success. We need help with administrative tasks, events, projects, concerts, and fundraising, and we ask that each family volunteer six hours of time during the season. We require an annual $125 deposit per family, which is refunded upon completion of the volunteer hours. Please carefully read the details of this community support program in our student handbook, which can be downloaded on the Musicians-Downloads tab.
ANNUAL COSTS OF CYSO MEMBERSHIP
Tuition scholarships are available to any student in need by emailing Executive Director, Michelle Orman, at email@example.com.
NEW FOR 2019-2020 SEASON:
CYSO is working with two merchants for fundraising options for families who require more assistance with tuition. More details coming in August. Proceeds from these individual fundraising opportunities will go directly to the tuition costs.
