  • Overview

    Over 500 ESYO youth musicians will transform Crossgates Mall 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.
    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.
