Virtual Playathon 2021
March 21 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Playathon is one of our most beloved traditions at NJYS because it’s the one time each year that all 500 NJYS musicians perform together. Since we can not perform a massive concert at The Mills at Jersey Gardens due to the pandemic, we will celebrate virtually on SUNDAY, MARCH 21!
This online event will include live performances by surprise artists, Q&A with our conductors, giveaways, announcement of the TOP fundraiser, and LIVE AUCTION to win a chance to conduct one of our NJYS ensembles!
Playathon is also NJYS’s largest fundraiser, raising over $90,000 annually. We are trying not to raise tuition to keep NJYS accessible to all families. But NJYS Tuition only covers about 75% of the cost of the program. That means we must fundraise to ensure the highest quality program. That includes performances at the best halls in New Jersey and beyond; master classes, workshops and coaching by world class artists; and scholarship and financial aid opportunities.
