Feb. 4: Playathon

February 4


Support ESYO’s most important friend-raiser and fundraiser,
and support the future of music! DONATE NOW!

See who’s already on the list!


With ESYO bigger than ever this season, we would like to make this our biggest Playathon ever, too, by raising $48,000!  To accomplish this, we have challenged each of our musicians and each of our ensembles with a fundraising goal.

To help a specific ensemble and/or member meet their Playathon fundraising goal, click on one of the below (if you do not know which ensemble a member is in, click on any and you can skip that response on the donation form):

On February 4, 2017 at Crossgates Mall, over 400 ESYO musicians will transform the shopping center into a symphony hall for its annual Playathon. This free, family event takes place from 11 a.m. through 6:30 p.m. and showcases 11 ESYO ensembles–from the deep rumble of the percussion ensembles to the uplifting trills of the wind orchestra. To view the full day’s schedule, click here.

The day will also include a Musical Petting Zoo from our friends at John Keal Music and live auctions to earn a chance to lead one of the ensembles!

The marathon display of musical talent is more than simply a community concert; it helps ESYO ensure no qualified musician is ever turned away from the ESYO Experience because of inability to pay. The money raised will fund a substantial portion of ESYO’s operating expenses and musician scholarships.
