BYC strongly supports school music programs and requires that all singers participate in their school's music program, if one exists at their school. Please write your school music teacher's name (chorus, band, orchestra, etc.). If your school doesn't have a music program, write "N/A".

By providing the singer’s cell phone and email address, BYC can share educational materials and instructions directly with the singer in addition to sharing with the parents/guardians.

I understand that attendance is more than learning notes: it is essential to the process of forming an ensemble. 1) My singer will arrive at least 5 minutes early to every rehearsal, and attend every rehearsal in its entirety. 2) My singer will bring music, water and a pencil to every rehearsal. 3) I understand that my singer is allowed up to 2 unexcused absences per semester. Absences are only excused for emergencies, and on a case-by-case basis approved before the missed rehearsal by the ensemble director. 4) If my singer has more than two (2) unexcused absences, or an excessive number of excused absences, this may trigger a conversation with the Executive Director about whether my singer may continue to sing with BYC for the remainder of the semester. 5) I will receive a detailed rehearsal/performance schedule before the season begins, and I will communicate any conflicts with the schedule to info@berksyouthchorus.org as early as possible.
*
I understand that my singer is expected to attend the entirety of each rehearsal of the season. I understand that it is my responsibility to ensure that my singer arrives at least five minutes early to rehearsal, and is picked up within 15 minutes of the end of each rehearsal. If I cannot ensure the singer's prompt dropoff and pickup, I must reach out to Berks Youth Chorus to notify them of our tardiness. Someone is only authorized to pick up or drop off my singer from a BYC rehearsal, concert or other event if I have listed them here as a parent/guardian or additional pickup/dropoff/emergency contact.
*
In order to coordinate transportation for BYC rehearsals and events, I agree to share my physical address in the BYC Singer Directory, only visible to BYC families.
*
I will make every effort to attend the mandatory parent meeting on August 29 at 6:30-7:30pm. If I cannot attend, I will inform Starr Snyder at info@berksyouthchorus.org.
*
The music given to singers during rehearsals is the property of Berks Youth Chorus. All music must be returned in good condition (minimal tears and creases, markings in pencils NOT pens, etc.) at the end of the season. I understand that I must provide a refundable deposit of $20 at the first BYC rehearsal in order for my singer to take their BYC music home with them. This deposit will be returned when my singer returns the music either 1) at the end of the semester/year of their enrollment, or 2) if they withdraw early from BYC.
*
Berks Youth Chorus is committed first and foremost to the safety and wellbeing of our singers and their families. BYC is currently mask optional. We will continue to monitor the pandemic closely and update our precautions as the situation changes. If the BYC Board of Directors considers it appropriate, BYC reserves the right to enforce mask wearing, social distancing and other precautions. We appreciate your compliance, patience and commitment to the health and wellbeing of every family of Berks Youth Chorus. If you have any questions or concerns about these precautions and policies, please do not hesitate to email us at info@berksyouthchorus.org.
*
I understand that this agreement constitutes permission to use rehearsal, press, and production photos of my singer for general distribution. I hereby grant Berks Youth Chorus all rights to use, reproduce, photograph, record, and otherwise disseminate any aspect of my singer’s performance and participation, it being understood that no compensation be made for this use. This agreement constitutes permission to use my family’s email addresses for BYC communication and marketing purposes, including, but not limited to, email newsletters. I further agree that my singer will appear at, and faithfully cooperate in, all publicity or promotional events scheduled by Berks Youth Chorus including television, radio, newspaper, and public appearances. This publicity and marketing agreement is made by the parent/guardian of the singer, a minor and his or her estate.

In consideration of the opportunity for their minor child to receive the educational and musical benefits of BYC's membership, Parents and legal guardians (referred to collectively as "Guardians") agree as follows: The minor child may participate in all BYC rehearsals, performances, tours and other BYC events, and GUARDIANS hereby authorize BYC and its staff and Directors to involve said minor in such rehearsals, performances, tours and events. GUARDIANS agree that said minor will be under the control and authority of such BYC Officers, staff and Directors, and that such Officers, staff and Directors may exercise parental supervision over the child. This constitutes an assignment of temporary guardianship, and Directors may exercise control and make all decisions thereunto pertaining. GUARDIANS further agree that they will, at all times, hereafter indemnify and save harmless BYC and its Officers, Directors, staff, parents, members and volunteers, both individually and in their capacity as such Officers, Directors, staff, parents, members and volunteers, and/or any other organization under whose auspices or in whose premises the minor may rehearse or perform and/or individual and/or organization providing transportation for said minor, from and against all claims, suits, damages, costs, losses, and expenses in any manner resulting from or arising out of said minor’s participation in such rehearsals, performances, and/or tours. It is understood that any medical, hospital, and surgical expenses, incurred as a result of treatment recommended, shall be borne by such GUARDIANS and, to the extent that such expenses may first be paid by BYC, GUARDIANS agree to reimburse it for such expenditures. GUARDIANS acknowledge that participating in BYC rehearsals, activities, performances and other events may include a possible exposure to a communicable disease including but not limited to MRSA, influenza, and COVID-19. GUARDIANS further acknowledge that they are aware of the risks associated with COVID-19 and that certain vulnerable individuals may have greater health risks associated with exposure to COVID-19. While particular recommendations and personal discipline may reduce the risks associated with participating in athletics during the COVID-19 pandemic, the risk of serious illness, medical complications, and possible death does exist. GUARDIANS knowingly and freely assume all such risks, both known and unknown, even if arising from the negligence of others, and assume full responsibility for Student’s participation in BYC rehearsals, activities, performances and other events during the COVID-19 pandemic. GUARDIANS willingly agree to comply with the stated recommendations put forth by the Berks Youth Chorus to limit the exposure and spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases. We certify that the minor child is in good physical condition or believe the minor child to be in good physical condition and allow participation in these events at our own risk. In consideration of the amount of time spent in rehearsals, performances, and/or tours, GUARDIANS also agree that emergency medical, including surgical treatments, may be authorized by said Officers, Directors and staff on GUARDIANS’ behalf when he/she cannot be immediately contacted. This agreement shall be binding upon my/our heirs, successors, administrators and assigns. By printing the Guardian's name above, the Guardian signs this binding agreement.
Tuition
NEW TUITION SCHEDULE

BYC has implemented a sliding scale tuition model to support families of all circumstances.

Your tuition payment is based on 3 factors:

  1. Your household income
  2. How many singers you are enrolling
  3. How long your singer is enrolled for (fall vs. full year)

You can also receive the following discounts:

  • Early Bird: Since you are registering before July 1st, you get a $50 discount (full year) or $25 discount (fall only)!
  • Refer-a-Friend: If your friend enrolls in Berks Youth Chorus and lists your name on their registration form, we will credit you $100 toward tuition.
  • Child of Alumni: Children of Berks Youth Chorus (formerly Berks Classical Children’s Chorus) alumni receive 10% off tuition.

You may opt for a monthly payment plan, or pay the tuition in full.

Please review this document to see our full tuition schedule.

 

Tuition is nonrefundable. If you select a monthly payment plan, BYC will continue to withdraw payments until the plan is complete. This policy may be altered on a case-by-case basis due to extenuating circumstances.

*
BYC uses a sliding scale, income-based tuition schedule. Please select your total HOUSEHOLD income.

Full Year singers receive a tuition discount. All registrants are automatically registered and required to attend Summer Sing on July 25-29 (if entering grades 3-7) or MasterSingers Retreat (if entering grades 8-12).
