TUITION FINANCIAL AID

ESYO is committed to ensuring that all musicians who successfully audition for ESYO ensembles are able to participate, regardless of financial considerations.  Musicians may apply for need-based tuition financial aid by completing and submitting an application by July 15, 2016.   Musicians receiving tuition financial aid may be asked to help their Managers or Conductors, which may include but is not limited to setting up / taking down chairs and stands before/after rehearsals and concerts.

Tuition financial aid has been partially funded for the 2015-16 season from the Alfred Z. Solomon Scholarship Fund, established by the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Foundation, and  the Keith Chapman Scholarship Fund, endowed by T. Norman Rea.  In 2016-17, financial aid will be partially funded by the Alfred Z. Solomon Scholarship Fund and the Suzanne D. Lake Scholarship Fund, established by ESYO Alum Kathryn Lake Clue.  ESYO is extremely grateful for the generosity of these donors who make it possible for so many young musicians to participate in ESYO.
