All of Cantabile’s music is used by copyright.  We collect this usage fee to offset licensing fees, binder purchase and music library maintenance.  All music is the property of Cantabile Youth Singers and must be returned at the end of each semester.  The Cantabile Music Usage fee offers students the opportunity to sing very complex and advanced repertoire and helps Cantabile maintain its music library and music storage - an important artistic resource.

Other Costs
Fall Weekend Retreat: All Ensemble & Vocalise singers are charged around $200 for full room and board to attend the mandatory weekend retreat (Friday night through Sunday morning with a family concert). The cost will be processed at the same time as the tuition balance.
