The Piedmont East Bay Children's Choir is a 501 (c ) (3) non-profit organization. All choir members pay tuition. Upper level singers in the Training Department have additional fees for retreats and, optionally, for summer music camp. Performing Department students in Concert Choir and Ensemble are required to participate in summer music camp which prepares them for their national and international tours respectively. Additional fees are added for summer music camp, retreats and the tours. Ecco and Ancora students may also choose to enroll in summer music camp as an option. Choir families are also responsible for purchasing event tickets for any concerts they may wish to attend.
Charges for the regular choir year (September through June, including fall and spring tuition, and any applicable camp/tour/retreat fees) are bundled together for ease of payment. Deferred payment plans are available to fit your family budget. Payments may be made by personal check, or credit card (VISA, MasterCard or Discover) via the Choir's secure online payment center. Please call the Registrar at 510.547.4441 for more information on deferred payment plans.
It is our hope that no student will miss out on Choir participation due to financial concerns. Our scholarships are need-based and generally cover 25%-50% of tuition and fees. Situations are considered on a case-by-case basis. However, with an increase in applicants each year, it is important for parents to submit all requested information by the due date. Applications that come in after the due date will be considered for a scholarship if funding is available. Application forms, with further information, is available for download below or by calling the Choir office at 510.547.4441.
