The NSYWE Season Fee – covering  one school year – is $350.

NSYWE uses these fees to pay for music and conductors, some rehearsal and concert venues, and rehearsal weekend snacks. As well, clinicians are hired during the rehearsal weekends to provide sectional music lessons to members. Members also receive an NSYWE t-shirt.

We automatically apply discounted rates for families.

If you have more than one member in the NSYWE, with the first musician paying the full fee ($350) and each subsequent musician in the family paying half the full fee ($175). So, if three family members were accepted into the ensemble, the family’s fees would total $700 ($350 + $175 + $175).

Season fees may be paid by cash, cheque, E-transfer or a major credit card on or before the first weekend.

Cheques can be mailed to NSYWE, 210-721 Windmill Road, Dartmouth, NS B3B 0J7

E-Transfers can be sent at anytime to

Cash and credit card payments will be accepted at the first rehearsal weekend.
