We are so excited to begin our 2020-2021 season with you!
For those of you new to the Tennessee Youth Symphony, welcome; we hope you will enjoy your experience with us. To our returning student musicians and families, welcome back.
We will kickoff this season’s virtual activities on Monday, September 14th, at 6.30pm, via a Zoom Meeting. (MEETING LINK and PHONE DIAL-IN DETAILS PROVIDED AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS MESSAGE.) We will start the session with a Parents’ Meeting to review some details of the upcoming season then, after a short break, we will transition to ensemble sessions where conductors will meet with their student musicians to conduct their first rehearsals. To be clear, there are some conditional aspects to this meeting: Parents must attend to receive the Zoom links for the follow-on rehearsals; student musicians must attend the follow-on rehearsals to receive access instructions for their ensemble’s music. . . . so please make every attempt to join this session.
In order to sufficiently accommodate every family’s participation in this single Zoom meeting, PLEASE LIMIT PARTICIPATION TO ONE ZOOM LOG-IN/DIAL-IN PER FAMILY.
In preparation for the meeting, we ask you to complete the following items:
1 – ensure that parents AND student musicians have verified their access to the TYS 2020-21 Google Classroom. We will share music, rehearsal information, and general correspondence via Google Classroom and the information you provide.
2- make your annual tuition payment(s).
Prelude Strings and Youth Symphony is $330 for the first student musician per family, $280 for each additional student musician. Jazz/Rock Band tuition is $150.
Online payments are preferred and can be made via PayPal at www.tnys.org/tuition. We would ask you to consider making an additional donation to cover PayPal’s transaction fees when you pay online. That option is available via our payment page.
Checks can be mailed to TYS at 5543 Edmondson Pike, #155, Nashville, TN 37211. (Please coordinate with the TYS Treasurer via firstname.lastname@example.org if you intend to mail tuition payments.)
Requests for tuition assistance are available via the www.tnys.org/tuition webpage, as well.
For those interested, TYS merchandise sales and general donations are available online.
We are foregoing snack fund donations in light of COVID concerns and our virtual rehearsal format.
That’s it! We cannot wait to see you all.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns via email@example.com.
