Tuition Information

Our 12th season starts with rehearsals on September 10th at Belmont United Methodist Church, Nashville. This year we will continue to give every student in the MCYO program both large ensemble and small Chamber Ensemble playing experiences.

Our Spring semester begins January 28th. Auditions are held for new MCYO students on January 14, 2019. Please complete the Audition Application and submit the form.

All rehearsals are Monday evenings and times are as follows:
Orchestra and Ensembles: 6:00 – 8:30

Students should arrive ten to fifteen minutes before rehearsal begins. This will allow time to unpack your instruments, be seated, and prepared to tune at the very start of rehearsal. Please bring a pencil.
