Financial information:

All singers in the FWC/FWCC pay annual dues of $150 and are required to purchase their own music. The FWC will order all concert music and the singers then reimburse us for the music. Financial aid is available to singers for whom these fees would keep them from singing with the choir. Female singers will need to purchase a concert dress. Financial assistance is also available for this cost as well.
