Frequently Asked Questions

Joining the Youth Choruses

Our choral program is open to all children and youth ages 4-13 without audition. Music and activities for each chorus level are chosen to be developmentally appropriate for each age group. New members can join at the beginning of each concert cycle. New member dates will be posted on this page.

Tuition

$275 for Prelude, $350 for Lyrica, and $495 for Harmonia for the school year. Tuition must be paid at registration. Students joining later into the program will receive pro-rated tuition amounts.

Financial Aid

Need-based scholarships are available for all of our programs. Scholarship applications are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis. Please complete the scholarship application form before enrolling, and then wait for our award confirmation, which will include instructions on how to enroll. All information provided to us is strictly confidential.

Rehearsal Schedule

The Youth Choruses meet weekly on Tuesdays from October through May. Prelude Chorus meets from 4:30-5:00 pm, Lyrica Chorus from 5:00-5:45 pm and Harmonia Chorus from 5:45-7:00 pm. We do not offer makeup classes when rehearsals have to be cancelled due to snow days or other emergencies. In the event of Director illness, we will do our best to provide a substitute conductor for the rehearsal.

Rehearsal Observation

Because children can be easily distracted we request that parents wait outside the rehearsal hall. We have a comfortable waiting area in our Main Lobby with free Wi-Fi for your convenience (when COVID-related restrictions are not in effect). Parents may request permission from the Director to observe a rehearsal at any time.

Practice Requirements

Some home practice may be required by the Director.

Attendance Requirements

Unexcused absences are not allowed from rehearsals, dress rehearsals, or concerts. Students are allowed one (1) excused absence for each of the three concert semesters. Examples of commitments and circumstances which can be eligible as excused absences: school concerts and dress rehearsals in which the student is performing, family emergencies, prolonged illness, observance of major religious holidays. Members of each ensemble are required to attend all dress rehearsals and concerts unless excused by the Director. At the discretion of the Director, students who miss a dress rehearsal may not be allowed to perform in the concert.

Concerts

Dress Rehearsals

Dress rehearsals are the final run-through rehearsal before a performance. It is not necessary to come in concert dress. Attendance at dress rehearsals is required for all students. Group rehearsal times will overlap on dress rehearsal days in order to prepare combined repertory. The schedule for dress rehearsal days will be sent to parents at least two weeks prior to rehearsal.

In-School Choral Programs

Members are expected to participate in their school’s choral program if one is offered. The Indian Hill Music Youth Choruses are considered extra-curricular, and are not intended to replace a school’s choral program for any student.

COVID-19 Protocols

All of Indian Hill Music’s in-person programs will follow appropriate COVID-19 safety protocols. Learn more
