Fees & Payment

VIP works to keep our fees as low as possible. We believe that every child should have access to the music and ministry of Voices In Praise. We charge a yearly materials fee that helps with the cost of music and supplies. We ask singers to turn in their music so that VIP can use it again. 
VIP is a uniformed choir.
1. Casual uniforms (Grades 6 - 12) - Performance T (black w/ white/mint logo) = $25
2. Formal uniforms (Grades 6 - 12) 
   We ask girls to pay a refundable deposit of $75 at the time their uniform is issued. This amount is refunded when the singer leaves the choir and returns her uniform. Girls should wear black dress shoes.
   We ask guys to purchase their own long-sleeve, black dress shirt with black buttons. We have them available for $25 if you need to purchase one. Guys should supply their own black belt, pants, socks, and shoes. 
3. Children's Choir Uniforms 
   We ask girls to purchase their own black uniform dress from Amazon. (Here is the dress.) Girls should wear black tight and dress shoes.
   We ask guys to purchase their own long-sleeve, black dress shirt with black buttons. We have them available for $25 if you need to purchase one. Guys should supply their own black belt, pants, socks, and shoes. 
If the existing fees are a challenge for your family, please let us know. We do not want any child to miss VIP for financial reasons.
For Grades 6 - 12 Only: 
♪ We serve a monthly dinner to singers. We ask each VIP family to pitch in and help by preparing food for two dinners per year.
♪ We ask all VIPs and parents to volunteer behind-the-scenes. Singers should volunteer 6 hours; one parent per VIP Family should volunteer 3 hours. Tasks include chaperoning events, driving singers, helping at events, administrative assistance, etc. Parents who choose not to participate may "buy out" of their commitment at a donation of $25/hour.  
Payment method: * 🛈
VIP works concessions at Baysox Games to raise funds for singer activities. We place $75 per worker, per game into the designated VIP account -- a great way to earn funds to help with VIP fees. Workers should be 12+. Workers who are 12 and 13 should be accompanied by a parent.
