Our payment structure and fees have been extensively revised for 2019-2020. Please click here for the complete details of our new payment policies. We have revised our payment options to give families the flexibility to use credit cards and to spread out the financial burden of membership over several months. Please note that even the most expensive of our ensembles, the Evans Orchestra and Youth Symphony, only cost $50 per month if considering our 9-month performance season.
The multiple-child/multiple-ensemble discount is only given after commitment to the second membership or ensemble and must be manually credited. IF YOUR FAMILY WILL HAVE MORE THAN ONE CHILD IN YOCVA OR A CHILD WHO PARTICIPATES IN MORE THAN ONE ONE ENSEMBLE, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE PAYMENT OPTIONS PROVIDED BELOW. They are calculated assuming participation in YOCVA by a single child. We will invoice you and provide exact payment amounts. You may contact us directly if you would like to take advantage of any extended payment options.
For everyone else, you will find the opportunity to pay your participation fees via PayPal below. As a small non-profit organization, we pass on a small 3% surcharge for all payments made through PayPal. The options provided assume a single child participating in our organization. Please contact us if you are unsure of the status of your account.
MAILING INSTRUCTIONS: If you would like to avoid paying the surcharge for credit card use, please scroll down to the very bottom of the page.
PLEASE NOTE: After July 1st, all participation fee payments made to YOCVA are non-refundable. Full payment of the remaining participation fee balance is due on September 1st unless a family is participating in the automatic monthly subscription plan. Fall auditionees or other members who join close to the start of the season must pay their balance due by the first rehearsal of the season, while Junior Strings who start in September must pay on October 15th at the end of their one-month trial period.
OPTION 1 (FULLY FUND YOUR CHILD’S MEMBERSHIP.)
YOCVA’s posted participation fees only cover 60% of the cost of running the organization and providing this valuable musical experience to your child. If you have the means, we would ask that you please consider fully funding your child’s participation. You will receive our gratitude as well as a tax receipt for your generous donation (the difference between our published fees and the full, unsubsidized cost of membership).
The options below assume that you have already paid either a $75 audition fee or $75 seat deposit.
OPTION 2 (PAY YOUR ENTIRE REMAINING PARTICIPATION FEE BALANCE NOW.)
Some of the options below assume that you have already paid either a $75 audition fee or a $75 seat deposit (neither of which apply to Junior Strings). Please read and carefully select the correct amount for your family. Refer to your invoice and contact us if you have any questions about your balance due. There is a 3% PayPal surcharge (discussed above) for use of a credit card.
OPTION 3 (PAY YOUR REMAINING PARTICIPATION FEE BALANCE WITH A PAYPAL SUBSCRIPTION THAT AUTOMATICALLY CHARGES YOUR CREDIT CARD OVER THE NEXT THREE MONTHS [OCTOBER THROUGH DECEMBER].)
You must sign up for this payment plan on or before October 31st. Please pay the full amount due according to your invoice, and contact us if you have any questions about your balance due. There is a 3% PayPal surcharge (discussed above) for use of a credit card.
