Mentor Top 25 does not collect a pay to play fee from the District. However there is Group Fee which includes formal attire, music, equipment and other group expenses that each member is required to pay. The fee for the 2020-21 school year is $350; due by July 31. If there is a hardship with your family, please reach out to the director, and accommodations can be made. These funds are nonrefundable.

Mentor Top 25 is planning a performance tour in June of 2021, providing Board approval and COVID-19 lifted restrictions. Each member is expected to participate in all performances AND fundraising efforts to help defray the cost of the trip. The Parent Fundraising Group will provide opportunities to raise at least approximately 50% of the final cost of the trip. Average cost of tours ranges from $1200-1500 per member. (The Group Fee is not included in that total.) Each member is expected to travel and represent Mentor High and the state of Ohio. Any questions can be emailed directly to Michelle Kuch: kuch@mentorschools.org. Again, please communicate any hardships or concerns to the director.

I look forward to hearing your auditions! I can't wait to start making music again.
Best of Luck! Remember deadline for submissions is May 31.
