Christmas Event Fees:
Post-covid we have a strong remote student base, so we have structured our recitals based on your Zip Code. Please read all these specifics…
- Event fees help us cover the cost of putting on the event, by creating a budget. The in-person Cooper House recitals cost us several thousand dollars; the overhead is much higher than zoom recitals, so our Cooper House event fees are higher.
- Event fees are charged out to the entire student body; it’s a part of our core structures, and is not refundable for any reason, even if you choose to not perform. The only exception to this is our adult students who prefer to not perform, and special needs students who may be unable to perform.
- CHRISTMAS Event fees will be charged out on/about the 20th of October. A bulk email and text will go out before it is run. If you have need to adjust it from the 20th, please email Mrs. Mitchell in the office. firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Since we have both remote and local students, we will have two Event Fees, one for remote Zoom Recitals ($20) and one for in-person Cooper House Recitals ($40).
