How do I order my uniform?


Beginning in the 2021-2022 season, singers in the Ragazze and Bravura ensembles will have two formal uniform options. Either option is acceptable for formal performances such as our winter and spring concerts, service Sundays, and when performing on tour. Singers are responsible for purchasing and maintaining their own uniforms. Please make sure to measure your child for the correct fit. Uniform ordering information will be available soon. Singers will also purchase an informal uniform t-shirt. This shirt will be worn at informal performances such as service events, sporting games, and other community performances. Men of Spirito are responsible for providing their own suit and shirt. Ties are provided by Spirito.




I already have a formal Bravura gown. Can I continue to wear it?


Yes! If you are happy with your Bravura gown, you may keep it to use for the remainder of your time in Spirito. When you leave Bravura, you can either keep your gown, offer it for sale to new singers or donate it back to the ensemble for future generations of singers to wear.




Does Spirito Singers have any uniforms in stock?


Yes. Spirito has a small stock of gently-used formal uniforms that singers can purchase at a discount. Singers are welcome to try on the uniforms to find a good fit. Please contact Carling FitzSimmons at cfitzsimmons@spiritosingers.org or Sharon Whiteside at swhiteside@spiritosingers.org to schedule a fitting.





Registration and Tuition Payments

How can I apply for Financial Assistance or a Scholarship?


Please submit a financial assistance application to cfitzsimmons@spiritosingers.org prior to registration. If you’d like to apply for a full-tuition scholarship, your student will need to complete the scholarship supplement in addition to their financial assistance application. Financial assistance is awarded on a sliding scale and on a first-come, first-served basis. Please visit our Scholarships and Financial Assistance page for more information.




What is the Withdrawal and Refund Policy?


If a singer needs to withdraw from a Spirito ensemble before the end of the semester, the following refund policy will apply: Singers withdrawing before the first rehearsal will receive a full tuition refund, minus any registration and processing fees. Singers withdrawing before the third week of rehearsals will receive a 50% tuition refund. Singers withdrawing after the third week of rehearsals will not receive any refund. Singers withdrawing on payment plans are subject to the above deadlines. Registration fees are non-refundable.




Do I need to register for the entire season?


Although the majority of singers sing with us for the entire season, a singer may register for just one semester if they have an unmovable commitment in the Fall or Spring. Please reach out to Ms. FitzSimmons (cfitzsimmons@spiritosingers.org) to inquire about our single semester option.
