Many Hearts. One Voice.
We welcome children who share our passion for making beautiful music.
Music making requires teamwork, and each chorister is integral to our success. Therefore, our choristers are expected to make a commitment to the choir for the entire school year.
Open enrollment for the Treble Makers begins in August at the start of the academic semester and continues for the first three rehearsals. Children may also join the Treble Makers at the start of the second school semester in January.
The West Virginia Treble Makers embrace diversity, and welcome children from all religious, racial, cultural and economic backgrounds to share our love of music.
Our director auditions each child to place him or her in the proper choral section (soprano or alto). Unlike many auditions, we seek to create a positive and relaxed environment to help our director determine the vocal development of our choristers. Children do not need to prepare a song or have any prior musical training to audition.
Auditions may be scheduled directly with the director, or immediately before or after the first three rehearsals of each academic semester.
The West Virginia Treble Makers is a non-profit organization. We charge a non-refundable tuition that helps to fund the operating expenses, including music, conductor’s salary, marketing and administrative costs, materials and other expenses. Tuition for the entire season is due even if the child chooses to not participate with the choir at any time during the year.
Tuition can be paid up front or via a payment plan, with a slight premium charged for payment plans. A deposit is due with the registration forms at the first rehearsal. Choristers will also be required to purchase a polo and tote bag.
Options for tuition payment are listed below:
- Pay up front: Discounts are available if tuition is paid in full at the start of the semester. Full year tuition will be $400 (due September 15), and half year $225 (due January 15).
- Semester plan: Full year: $50 deposit due at registration, plus three payments of $125 due on October 1, November 1, and December 1 (total payment $425). For the second semester only (if choristers join in January): $50 deposit due at registration, plus two payments of $100 due February 1 and March 1. (total payment $250)
- Monthly plan: Full year: $25 deposit due at registration, plus monthly payment of $45 due on the 15th of each month from September through May (total payment $430). For the second semester only (if choristers join in January): $25 deposit due at registration, plus monthly payment of $45 due on the 15th of each month from January through May (total payment $250)
A limited amount of financial aid is available to those who qualify. Parents may discuss financial aid with our Executive Board, and decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
