SVYS uses PayPal to process tuition payments online.

We use PayPal so that we do not store your credit card on our site.

PayPal accepts all major credit cards and does not require a PayPal account to pay. PayPal adds a processing fee of 2.2% + 30 cents to each transaction.

Tuition Amounts Including Processing Fee if Paid Online:

Youth Symphony $281.50
Sinfonia Orchestra $240.38
Preparatory Orchestra $240.38
Junior Strings $204.82
Starter Strings $189.25

Two Steps to Pay Online:

Select your tuition amount with the drop-down menu:

If you auditioned for the Youth Symphony, Sinfonia Orchestra, or Preparatory Orchestra, verify your placement results before making a tuition payment.

You will be taken to the PayPal processing page, where you will be able to enter your credit card information.

Pay By Check Banner

To avoid a processing fee, bring a check to the Parent Meeting at the first rehearsal, or send by mail to:

Sangamon Valley Youth Symphony
420 S. 6th Street
Springfield, IL 62701-1808

Make your check in the amount of the tuition for your ensemble shown on the top right of this page.

Credit cards will also be accepted at the Parent Meeting.

SVYS uses a PayPal card swipe to accept your payment at the Parent Meeting. A PayPal processing fee is added to each payment. See above for the amounts of this fee.
