* Discounts available for early registration and one-time annual payment. Fees can also be prorated for students who start after our season begins.

Apply for a student bursary here.
Additional Fees and Considerations:
In-lieu of Volunteering: The NSCE relies with gratitude on parent volunteers to support our programs and performances. In addition to the basic expectation that each family helps to sell tickets to performances, everyone is asked to commit to at least ~ 10 hrs over the course of the year. Specific roles and time commitments are described in the registration form. If you are unable to volunteer your time, an additional $100 fee is assessed on top of your program fees.
Seniors Retreats: The Senior Ensemble has two retreats/season in September and January. Each retreat costs $175. This fee covers food, venue rental and payment of professional musicians who participate in the retreat. Senior ensemble members will be assessed their fall retreat fee as part of their September payment.
Junior and Senior Tours/Trips: Additional fees are assessed, on a cost recovery basis, for 1 -2 tours and/or trips over the course of the season.
