All applicants will be notified of the results of their audition by e-mail. This process may take up to one month. Please do not call the CYO office for results. Decisions of the staff are final and non-appealable. If accepted into one of the ensembles, students will be sent enrollment information including information on annual season fees.
Fees: There is a non-refundable audition fee of $25. Tuition for the 2019-20 season is $450, and is non-refundable. Installment plans and financial assistance are available; for more information, please contact General Manager Ben Kipp.
Other Requirements: All orchestra members are expected to participate in school music programs, when such programs exist. By participating in a school music program, you benefit by playing every day, becoming a better sight-reader, and playing an important part in helping to build meaningful music programs in your schools and communities.
