There is an added variable Eventbrite processing fee added to the registration fee per session.

Are there financial aid scholarships available?
Yes! Part of are goal as a community ensemble is to make sure our program is accessible and affordable to all families regardless of income. To apply for financial aid or to learn more, email

How do I join?
Registration information for the fall, winter, spring, and summer sessions is typically announced several months in advance so you are able to plan your child’s after school commitments as early as possible. You will always receive an email from us with information on how to register but you can always check back here regularly to find out information about upcoming rehearsals, performances, and workshops.
