Both our Newton and Pella choirs are generously subsidized by a gift from the Fred Maytag Family Foundation and we gladly pass that savings along to your family. As with the Metro, tuition covers instruction, music, and other costs such as venue, advertising and administration. It does not cover uniform costs or overnight tour expenses.

While the 10% discount is not available to Outreach participants, Flexible Tuition options are.

Income Adjusted Tuition (Flexible Tuition)

Iowa Youth Chorus is committed to making sure that the benefits of world class choral education are available to every child in Iowa no matter of their economic circumstances. To meet that goal we offer Income Adjusted Tuition Options for all families in the Metro and Outreach choirs.

The system is based off of your Adjusted Gross Income divided by the number of people living in your home. If you want to be technical, you can find these numbers on your last year’s tax return under line 37 and line 6d of the standard IRS 1040 form. If you have questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact our Executive Director at [email protected].
