Bridge Arts Play-A-Thon!
Let's make the world a better place through music. Join us for Bridge Arts and Education's first ever Play-A-Thon for a Cause! We will partner with the Alzheimer's Association to raise funds for their incredibly important mission.
Find A Cure.
This event is open to music students of all ages. All you have to do to participate is register! You may register as part of a team or school/studio or simply as an individual.
Our Play-A-Thon will work just like a bike-a-thon or a walk-a-thon except you use your musical talents while at home. Have family and friends support you and our cause by sponsoring your musical practicing.
Pledges may be a flat fee or a per minute of practicing fee. (Honor system required.) Sponsors can make pledges directly on our website and pay online or send a check made out to "Bridge Arts and Education, Inc"
Our Play-A-Thon will happen online so you can be anywhere. The event will conclude with an online presentation and awards!
Fun musical challenges will be made available through our social media platforms and websites throughout the play-a-thon event.
Registration Opens: November 2 (stays open until December 7)
Play-A-Thon: Monday, November 16 - Sunday, December 13
Awards Announced: Monday, December 14 @ 7pm
A Play-A-Thon is a great way to motivate musicians to practice their instruments. During Covid-19 many concerts and musical opportunities have been canceled so Bridge Arts wanted to find a fun and meaningful way for students to keep making music!
Why the Alzheimer's Association? According to the Alzheimer's Association "music and art can enrich the lives of people with Alzheimer's disease. Both allow for self-expression and engagement, even after dementia has progressed."
Bridge Arts hopes this is the first of many Play-A-Thons. We hope to be able to partner with many worthy causes and be a vessel of music creating good.
The first step is to register!
