Program Costs

We'll never turn your family away for financial reasons.

A quality music education shouldn't break the bank. We believe that the transformative power of song should be accessible to anyone who wants it. That's why all of our programs are offered on a sliding scale.

Nearly 70 percent of the program cost for each singer is subsidized by Uniting Voices Chicago (formerly Chicago Children's Choir) through the indispensable support of our philanthropic partners and donor community. Beyond that, we work individually with families to address any financial hurdles to ensure that any singer who wants to participate has the opportunity.
