2017 Playathon Music Festival
April 2 | 1:00-4:30 PM
The Mills at Jersey Gardens
651 Kapkowski Road in Elizabeth


For 33 years NJYS has been performing a spectacular Playathon, and now it is even bigger and better than ever!  Over 450 musicians performing together is a spectacular sight to witness and to participate in! Performances include jazz, classical and musical theatre, and the full orchestra concert features Pops music from movies and musicals. This heart-warming and moving occasion—which many members describe as their favorite performance of the year—serves as the primary student fundraising activity for the organization. Students raise money from friends and family, both individually and as an ensemble, fostering teamwork and camaraderie as well as teaching the importance of giving back. Funds raised through Playathon support the daily operations of the organization, including scholarships and tuition assistance.
