The money raised will buy music, instruments, supplies, provide travel funds and allow 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. Basically, it’s a blast!
Attendance is mandatory for all band students and band families are required to support the Playathon effort prior to and on the event day, by volunteering, providing food donations, and assisting in other ways.
