Playathon is one of our most beloved traditions at New Jersey Youth Symphony. We are thrilled to return to The Mills at Jersey Gardens Mall in Elizabeth on Sunday, March 24. This year we will support children in our community by donating 25% of all gifts received the day of Playathon to Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation!
Playathon is also NJYS's largest fundraiser. Tuition only covers 70% of expenses and we fundraise for the remaining $90,000 to keep programming affordable for our families. Please help us reach our goal by June 30 by creating and sharing your fundraising page today!
For an orchestra to make beautiful music, each musician needs to practice! Let's work together to log practice minutes to reach our 50,000 practice minute goal.Post your Practice Minutes!
