 TUITION FOR SESSION #1 IS $250 

 

Our program will be offering three sessions this academic year at 250 dollars per session. Session 1 will be online. Students may choose to participate in any or all sessions. In an effort to remain flexible in planning, information on session two will become available in late October. We hope to transition back to normal on campus rehearsals at some point this season depending on state, city and campus guidelines. If we remain online, we be offering new electives each session. 

Returning musicians do not need to audition, unless seeking promotion to another ensemble.
