Appropriations money cannot be used to pay fundraising fees.
Out of town travel assistance is available up to $400 per family per year based on attendance at rehearsals and the price of gas. As well, members both in and outside of Regina may require financial assistance in the payment of their fees. Members requiring either travel or other financial assistance should contact our treasurer. We are happy to make arrangements for those who find the financial obligations of the SSYO onerous.
Each year, scholarships based on merit are awarded to SSYO members at the discretion of the Music Director.
All memberships should be paid before your audition. A complete refund will be made if the applicant is unsuccessful.
