Edmonton String Players Association is a volunteer run, non-profit organization and federally registered charity.  This means that the Music Enrichment Program is able to remain affordable and accessible to students across socio-economic borders.  Without the time and support of volunteers, the Music Enrichment Program would not be able to continue.

To that end, MEP has reinstated it’s volunteer deposit fee which will be applied to all 2017-2018 registrations.  A $150 volunteer fee will be included in your registration order total and must be paid at the time of registration.  This fee will be fully refunded to you upon completion of two (2) approved volunteer activities. All registered students will be sent a list of volunteer opportunities at the beginning of the 2017-2018 season, and as they arise throughout the year.  

Thank you to all of those who have volunteered their time in various ways throughout this current season. The winner of the 2016-2017 draw for free tuition* will be announced in June 2017!  


*free tuition applies to either one class registration OR one orchestra registration for anyone in your family.
