Payment and evaluations
Payments are due on or before the program date. Please do not give payment to YA artists. Late fee will be applied to outstanding invoices. For your convenience, YAV accepts Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

Young Audiences of Virginia, Inc.

Confirm and prepare for the program
Confirmation will be sent to you within 10 days of scheduling and is considered to be a binding, legal document that serves as the invoice/contract and provides important information regarding the program. Failure to return a signed confirmation does not constitute cancellation of the original verbal agreement.
Please advise the necessary school personnel of the technical requirements listed in the confirmation and of any special notes. If you do not receive your confirmation within 10 days, please notify our office immediately.
It is YAV’s policy that a teacher or other school employee be present in the room or in the performance area at all times during the program. Artists have the right to refuse to conduct a program if a staff member is not in attendance.
Publicity and Documentation
All artists and ensembles listed in YAV’s online program guide are YAV performers, and must be advertised as such in all publicity.
Rescheduling or cancellation on the part of YAV or the artist due to illness, inclement weather, or other unforeseen circumstances will entitle the school to either reschedule the event or use a substitute ensemble (subject to the ensemble’s availability).
Programs cancelled by a school or community at any time after the written confirmation is sent are subject to full or partial payment.
