The cost of equipping our members with instruments and uniforms, providing transportation, food and housing is quite a financial undertaking! We are fortunate that the fundraising efforts of our local parents and friends of the Pioneer contribute a substantial share of the cost of providing these services. Pioneer members pay the remainder themselves in the form of dues. The total cost to the members varies by program/ensemble, but can range as high as $800 per season.
To insure that all of our members will be able to participate in Pioneer, we offer them a program called Sponsors of Pioneer Youth (S.O.P.Y.). The S.O.P.Y. program was developed to help members recruit sponsors in order to help offset the costs of participating. Through your participation in this program, you are helping to make someone's dreams to achieve his or her performing goals a reality!
