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 27. 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.

In 2018-19, financial aid will be partially funded by the Alfred Z. Solomon Scholarship Fund; The Harmony in Music Scholarship, established by the Kolodziej and Resta Family; the Suzanne D. Lake Scholarship Fund, established by ESYO Alum Kathryn Lake Clue; the Richard Albagli Scholarship Fund; the Helen Cha-Pyo Golden Baton Award & Scholarship Fund; and The Niskayuna Community Foundation. ESYO is extremely grateful for the generosity of these donors who make it possible for so many young musicians to participate in ESYO.

DISCOUNTS

  • Discount for multiple memberships:  A discount of $50 per tuition is available for multiple tuitions in one family (e.g., more than one musician in ESYO, OR membership by one musician in two or more ensembles).
