Playathon 2021

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!

Virtual Practice Challenge

For an orchestra to make beautiful music, each musician needs to practice! If we all work together and log 450,000 minutes, we will unlock a grant from a generous donor to launch our new Scholarship Program. That means each musician needs to log 1,050 minutes (30 minutes x 5 days/week x 7 weeks) for practice done from February 1 through March 19!

Post your Practice Minutes Starting Feb 1

Let's complete 450,000 minutes together!

Fundraise for Playathon

Playathon is our largest fundraiser, raising over $90,000! We rely on each student to fundraise at least $295 to help meet this goal. We are trying not to raise tuition to keep NJYS accessible to families. But NJYS Tuition only covers about 75% of the cost of the program.
