2020-2021 TUITION:

DEPOSIT: A $100 deposit is due upon acceptance into the CSOYO and should be paid online or by check received by August 14, 2020.


Checks can be mailed to the CSOYO at 701 Broad Street, Chattanooga, TN 37402 ATTN: Stephanie Pearson and must be received by close of business on Friday, August 14, 2020.

YEARLY TUITION RATES: The balance of the tuition is due on or before September 4, 2020. All payments are non-refundable.

Tuition is as follows:
ETUDE $200

FAMILY DISCOUNT: Families with two or more students enrolled in the CSOYO are eligible to receive a discount of $50 per student after the first student has paid the regular tuition fee in full as shown above.

By accepting membership in CSOYO, parents and students are agreeing to the adjusted COVID- 19 plan for continuing CSOYO, even if it means in person rehearsals are suspended at some point due to local/state/national health guidelines, or if our venue shuts down, and learning goes online. We will not offer tuition refunds or pro-rated membership once membership in CSOYO has been accepted.

2020-2021 COVID “OPT-OUT” EXCEPTION: This season, musicians who are selected for or renew their membership by August 1 but, due to COVID-19, do not feel comfortable returning to rehearsal in the fall of 2020 may delay their participation in the CSOYO until January of 2021 and the CSOYO will hold their place in their selected orchestra. Musicians who “opt-out” of the Fall Concert Cycle would not attend any rehearsals or CSOYO events, in-person or online, from September – December 2020, or perform on the Fall Concert. These members will be eligible to return to rehearsal in January, after the holiday break. Members must decide to “Opt Out of Fall” and notify the CSOYO Manager by August 14, 2020 and the $100 deposit must be paid. Opt-out members pay half their regular tuition rate, and the balance is due along with all other tuition by September 4, 2020. All payments are non- refundable. Should members wish to continue to “opt-out” in January, their CSOYO membership would expire and their tuition is forfeited.
