ISO is Happy to Announce Our Annual Playathon!

On March 10th InterSchool Orchestras will host a fundraising Playathon featuring all four
student groups.

In addition to being a fun showcase of our ensembles complete with bake sale
and raffle, the Playathon is a chance for student groups to come together and raise $40,000
needed for InterSchool Orchestra’s scholarship and financial aid programs.

Why Fundraise?

Over 80% of ISO’s 270 musicians receive some form of scholarship or financial aid. Nearly
$200,000 of aid is awarded each year to ensure every young musician has access to quality
ensemble training and performance opportunities.

  • Students ask friends and family to sponsor their performance on March 10th, and direct
    all pledges and donations to the online Playathon site:
    Playathon donations
  • Each ensemble has their own team page. Donors select which team they are sponsoring,
