Discounts

WVYC offers a range of discounts to members of the choir.

Family Discount
The family discount is aimed at reducing the overall cost to those families with more than one young person in the Choir:

  • 10% off term fees for each chorister from the same family.

Longevity Discount
We want to acknowledge and reward those choristers who stay with WVYC for a long time. As such we are introducing a tiered scale of discounts as follows:

  • 5% off term fees for those choristers who remain in the choir beyond 2 years.
  • 10% off term fees for those choristers who remain in the choir beyond 3 years.
  • 15% off term fees for those choristers who remain in the choir beyond 4 years.
  • 20% off term fees for those choristers who remain in the choir beyond 5 years.

Bursaries and financial hardship

WVYC does not want cost to be a prohibitive factor for young people participating in the choir. If you and your family would find it difficult to pay some or all of the costs, please read the information on scholarships and bursaries.

Alternatively, if full upfront payment of fees is difficult, and you would like to arrange a payment plan, please contact Sharron Bright wvyc.treasurer@gmail.com
