Family Ad Commitment

$50-$100 / year — PYC's Annual Program Book is a huge marketing tool for the choir. It is distributed at each concert, mailed to teachers and schools and placed at various businesses and organizations.   Each PYC family  participates in the Family Ad Commitment by purchasing or selling a program ad to businesses owned by friends or family. Some families simply choose to honor the Family Ad Commitment without purchasing an ad.  These families are recognized as donors at the Patron level.   A Family Ad Commitment Form is distributed to all choristers during the first week of rehearsals. 

Required Chorister Materials

Each PYC chorister is required to have a PYC Music Bag and a PYC Polo-shirt to be worn to rehearsals. These items can be purchased through the online store on this website.  Additionally, PYC choristers must purchase formal performance garments.  Students are measured for these garments at the beginning of the year and purchase them separately through our provider.
