FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Which program is ideal for my child?
For females, we offer Little Voices for ages 4 to 6, RHV Cherub for ages 7 to 9, RHV Junior for ages 10 to 12, and RHV for ages 13 to 19. Additionally, for females, we offer RHV Chamber for ages 13 to 19, which is available through audition only. For males, we offer Little Voices for ages 4 to 6, A Few Good Men in Training for ages 7 to 8, and A Few Good Men for ages 9 to 19.
What if my child’s birthday occurs after registration?
Our programs align with school grades. Therefore, the relevant program for your child is based on their age on December 31 of the year when they are registered. For example, a 6 year old girl that is turning 7 in October should register for Cherub, as opposed to Little Voices.
When are your full year and mid-year seasons?
Our full year season runs from September to May. Our mid-year season runs from January to May. Our season is aligned with our concerts and provides the appropriate number of rehearsals for our choristers to be prepared for our concerts.
When do you perform concerts?
We typically perform concerts in December and May each year. Additionally, our choirs may perform at various choir festivals, competitions, smaller events, and ad hoc gigs throughout the season.
When can I register my child?
For our full year season, we take registrations from June to mid-October. Between December and January, we take registrations for our mid-year season.
Do you offer an early bird discount?
Yes, we offer an early bird discount for those that register for the upcoming season before June 30. The discount applies only to tuition and not other fees like the volunteer buyout and uniform rental & deposit.
What are the mechanics of quarterly payments?
The Oakville Choir offers quarterly payments for the regular tuition fee. Quarterly payments are four equal amounts charged starting at time of registration through the end of the season (e.g., registration on July 1 will result in payments on July 1, October 1, January 1, and April 1). Quarterly payments do not apply to other fees like the volunteer buyout and uniform rental & deposit.
Do you currently have availability?
We have availability for all our choirs at the moment.
