As with the great majority of youth orchestras across the country, the Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Ensembles (SRSYE) depend upon tuition fees and parent contributions. Santa Rosa Symphony has made every effort to keep rates competitive with other youth ensembles in the area and has consistently kept tuition lower than the average. Approximately 13 Northern California Youth Orchestras are surveyed to draw these comparisons.
Mandatory fees include tuition and a $25 materials fee per student per ensemble. Fees for the 2012-2013 season are as follows:
|Ensemble||Annual Tuition||Materials Fee|
|String Orchestra Workshop (8 wks)||$125||$25|
|Young People's Chamber Orchestra (8 wks)||$150||$25|
A limited number of financial aid awards are available each season to help members cover tuition fees. Student eligibility is based upon family income and expenses, using criteria created by the State of California Department of Education. You may obtain a financial aid application by requesting one from the SRS Education Department or by printing the forms from the SRS website at www.santarosasymphony.com. Please note that financial aid recipients are not eligible for other tuition discounts.
Deadlines for financial aid vary and are posted on the SRS website. Applications received prior to the deadline are given preference over those received following the deadline.
