Every December, NNMTA organizes a Christmas Play-a-Thon at which students are given an opportunity to play in public places such as malls for valuable performance experience. Students are encouraged to solicit donations from family and friends to support their performance. Donations are used to help fund the Reno Youth Music Festival and other NNMTA events.
Performed repertoire does not have to be Christmas-oriented. In fact, it’s common for students to play their standard repertoire of classical music and even music from their beginning method books. Participation is organized through teachers, so contact your teacher for more information. Teachers can contact Christine Barden for more information.
Use this form for students to request/record donations from family and friends.
