Play-a-thon

Be Part Of It!


The Play-a-thon is a beloved Burlingame tradition, an important fundraiser for the BHS Music Department and a meaningful community event. Bands and choirs will perform continuously in Washington Park (on Carolan side) and make a special trip up and down Burlingame Avenue. This year, the Play-A-Thon is on Saturday, April 15, 2023 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.

The Music Boosters sponsors the Play-a-thon. As a parent of music students, you are a Music Booster. Together with our musicians’ amazing directors, we make the music programs sing!

What are we raising money for?

The Music Boosters’ fundraising revenue is an essential supplement to the school budget.

      • We support scholarships so that all students can participate in group trips like the National Youth Choir Invitational at Carnegie Hall.

      • We support performance attire that allows musicians to shine. Recently we replaced 50 year-old marching band uniforms and performance dresses and tuxes.

      • We support purchase of sheet music and instrument repair/maintenance.

The Play-A-Thon funds about 1/3 of the Music Boosters $40,00 annual budget. That’s why your participation is vital!
