The annual Lehigh Valley Music Teachers Association Play-a-Thon, sponsored by John J. Zeiner & Sons, Inc., is our primary fund raising vehicle.
Proceeds provide generous scholarships to selected college music majors and music camp scholarships for high school applicants. Also supported are the Achievement Awards Auditions, Dorothy Sutton Music Festival, annual recitals at local colleges and Musikfest, master classes, lectures and workshops for teachers and students, and group discount tickets and bus trips to performances in the Valley and beyond.
In advance of their Play-A-Thon performances, student musicians collect cash pledges from their family, friends, and neighbors.
This fun filled event provides a wonderful performance experience for the musicians and a delightful listening experience for their families, friends, and passers-by. Students are invited to perform any style of music, memorization is not required, and ensembles are encouraged.
