Welcome to Playathon Central!
Wednesday, November 8th (Yes, it’s on a Wednesday!)
The 2017 Playathon will be Wednesday, November 8th and is the major fundraiser for the Rio band program, a concert featuring all of our groups, and a tradition that began in 1981. The money we raise buys music, instruments, supplies, provides travel opportunities, and generally allows the Rio Band to continue as a first-rate program. This event has grown to be a lot of fun for our students as well as a connection to the community, and a bond with our middle and elementary feeder schools. Basically, it’s a blast. So, today the tradition continues with 17 hours of non-stop music!
