2019 Playathon Acknowledgement

The 2019 Playathon was held on Saturday, February 9 at the Clairemont Lutheran Church. Students, teachers, families and friends enjoyed an afternoon filled with beautiful solo piano music, violin concerto and piano duets in the fundraising concert for the Goodlin Foundation music scholarships. Among the 25 performers were former Goodlin Competition participants, Goodlin winners, and three of the Kids Into Music (KIM) scholarship recipients.
