Tuition / Scholarships
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 Intensive Weekends 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 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 tour/retreat fees) are bundled together for ease of payment.
Camp payment is due in two installments May 15th and June 15th.
Monthly payment plans are available to fit your family budget. Payments may be made by check, or via the Parent Portal.
It is our hope that no student will miss out on Choir participation due to financial concerns. We offer scholarships at all levels. 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 dates: May 15th for the performing department, and August 15th for the training department. New singer applications are due August 30th. 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.
