The performance fee funds the immense cost of putting together a quality music program. In combination with general fundraisers, we are able to pay for our entire operating budget. Fees are used to fund trips to festival, music purchases, bows, guitar strings and other equipment needed to give our students the best possible music education experience. This budget only includes what is necessary to run the program at an acceptable level. It does NOT include money for replacement of needed percussion, brass and other large instruments.
This year's fees are:
$25 per semester for each performance class (Orchestra, Band, Chorus)
$10 per semester for Guitar and Percussion Ensemble
If you are in multiple programs (band AND chorus, or orchestra AND band) you only need to pay ONE performance fee for all three of those programs.
ALL guitar students must pay the guitar fee, in addition to any other performance fee they might have paid.
The performance fee SHOULD NOT hinder anyone from participating in the music program. If this fee is not within your family budget, please contact Mr. Heist, Mrs. Fullerton, Ms. Bennett or Mr. Tambascio to work out a solution such as an alternate payment schedule or other possible fundraising efforts.
