Playathon 19/20

Thank You for Supporting Playathon!


Playathon is New Jersey Youth Symphony’s largest fundraiser, raising over $100,000 annually!

We are trying not to raise tuition to keep NJYS accessible to families. But NJYS Tuition only covers 70% of the cost of the program. That means NJYS fundraises to ensure the highest quality program, including:

  • Performing at the best halls in NJ
  • Master classes and coaching by world-class artists
  • Scholarship and financial aid opportunities 
  • Online programming to connect us through music in these challenging times

Our goal is 100% participation from our students; gifts of all sizes are so important and count toward participation (about half of NJYS students have participated to date!). 

Make a Donation:

  1. Click Find a Team/Participant, and search for the student's name.

  3. Click on the "Sponsor Me" box on the right side of the page.
