Other Costs

  • $36 Audition/Registration Fee: This is non-refundable fee for each audition (including advancement auditions), payable at the time of the audition. Students in Youth Symphony and Percussion Ensemble who do not need to audition pay a $36 registration fee.
  • Optional Costs: The costs of tickets and other variable and optional items such as concert videos are not covered by tuition fees.

Volunteer Requirement

We ask all BYSO families to fulfill at least four hours of volunteer service per musician per year. Many different simple tasks are available. We often also have office odd jobs and small projects that are perfect for students needing a few more Community Service hours. View volunteer tasks or sign up now.
