Making the Arts Accessible
The Cape Symphony is committed to making the arts accessible to as many students as possible within the community. Each year, as funds are available, we award financial aid to students with the greatest demonstrated need.  Awards are based on a sliding scale reflecting the total household income and the number of members in the household. Awards generally range between 10% and 75% of the total tuition. The Cape Symphony does not discriminate on any basis, including race, color, religion, origin, age, ability or sexual orientation.

Application Deadline
While there is no specific deadline, students are encouraged to submit the Application Packet as soon as possible.  

Please note: financial aid is not available for summer classes.
