2016-2017 Georgia Children’s Chorus Season

As GCC registrations, tuition payments, sponsorships, donations, performance RSVPs, CD/DVD ordering and flower and candy ordering are done using the online ServiceU system. The implementation of this system is being done to simplify the recordkeeping involved with managing the non-musical aspects of the Georgia Children’s Chorus. >>Learn more

Payment options are listed at the bottom of the page.

Uniforms

Formal Uniform

Singers in the Intermezzo & Concert Choirs wear white tux shirts, black pants and cummerbunds (Intermezzo Choir) or vests (Concert Choir). Vests and cummerbunds are the property of the Georgia Children’s Chorus and are rented to singers. The tux shirts, Chorus pins and cummerbunds or vests will be ordered for all members. Girls will also have their pants ordered for them. Boys wear their own black dress pants. GCC occasionally has some used attire in stock. Those may be available to members for a reduced price.

  • Intermezzo Choir Uniform Fee: $ 88.00 (girls) $ 57.00 (boys)

THE UNIFORM FEE IS AN ESTIMATE. Uniforms are ordered for each new singer and payment is due upon receipt of the uniform items.

Chorus Pins

The Chorus pin is part of the uniform, and it is also a keepsake for your child. Only one original Chorus pin needs to be purchased. Members get a new bar to add to their pin each year, signifying the number of years in the Georgia Children’s Chorus. Each year, we will provide singers with a bar to add to the pin, indicating their years of participation. Chorus pins are $12.00 and included in the price of the uniform above.

Payment Options

These fees can be paid in full at the start of the season, by semester, or monthly. Upon acceptance into the Chorus, you will receive a specific individual statement of fees. Payment arrangements can be made at that time. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify.  To request a financial assistance application, click here or call the GCC office at 706.542.8711.

Fundraising

To help raise the necessary funds to maintain Georgia Children’s Chorus, families contribute by selling tickets to concerts, annual fundraisers, and promoting the Cookin’ Up A Song cookbook.

  • Each family sells 4 concert tickets ($10 each) to both the Winter and Spring concerts, totaling $80.
  • Each family sells 7 Georgia Children’s Chorus raffle tickets, totaling $60.
