HS Choir Fees

Teachers: Just a friendly reminder: We do not have Audition fees for HS Choir. The only time that will be different is if you miss the FIRST Deadline! If you miss the first Deadline, THEN and only THEN will you have to pay the Late Audition Fee of $30.00, $60.00 or $100.00 as shown on the invoice generator. WE DO have a PARTICIPATION FEE OF $10.00 per student, for those who are selected to the HS Honor Choir.
