Concessions
Sorry - there are no concession rates for Classes, only choirs. Concessions apply to people who are registered unemployed or disabled, and those receiving Income Support, Working Family Tax Credit, Invalidity Benefit, Severe Disability Allowance, Jobseekers Allowance or similar benefits; also people over 60 and students in full-time education. Full-time students under 25 may also claim a further discount (except for the Learn to Read Music Class). Proof is required to claim a concessionary rate.

Discount
More than one choir: if you wish to join more than one choir, you are entitled to a discount of £25 (£17 concessions). For a third choir, deduct a further £10 (£5 concessions).

Early Bird Prize Draw
A Prize Draw takes place each term at the first rehearsal from the online enrolments completed and paid for prior to the first rehearsal. The winner receives the equivalent of half their term fees.

Introduce a Friend
Current choir members will also receive a £20 reduction in their term fee (the following term) if they introduce a new member who enrols in a choir!

Refunds
If a choir rehearsal has to be cancelled, for example, due to bad weather conditions, refunds will not be given, as we will try to arrange an alternative date. If a class has to be cancelled and cannot be rearranged, the fee will be refunded based on the number of cancelled sessions.

If a member does not take up a place or complete a term for any reason (other than the above) there is no entitlement to a refund. You can however opt to transfer your fee to the following term. If you wish to transfer to another choir or class you need to consult our Administrator, and any difference in the fee or subscription must be paid or be refunded. If you require a receipt for your postal enrolment, you will need to enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope.

Gift Aid
If you are a taxpayer, current legislation allows us to reclaim basic rate income tax on your membership subscriptions (however not on CDs, class fees or tuition elements). When enrolling please sign the declaration on the Membership Form if you are happy for us to do this. Remember to notify us if you no longer pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax equal to the tax we can reclaim on your donations.

Members website
Once you have enrolled in a choir or class, you will be eligible to access the Members' area on the AS website and added to the mailing list to receive e-mail information about choir activities, social and other events. An online resource only, you can access information sheets, publicity posters, the Newsletters, Committee Minutes, photos of concerts, additional trips and social events. This helps us reduce postal costs and speeds up communication about choir events. The Administrator will send you an email with an invitation to join and give you a pre-selected password that you can change to a more memorable version once you are logged in.
