There is a registration fee (previously $25, 2020 fee TBA) for students participating in chorus to cover the cost of meals/rentals and programming. Chapters will pay this fee through the convention registration. Students with dietary restrictions for dairy or gluten should contact to coordinate a reduced registration fee as the state may not be able to coordinate gluten-free/dairy-free options with current meal vendors.
