Lucy Moses School Play-A-Thon

On February 9, 2020, Lucy Moses School hosted its fourth annual Play-a-thon; a marathon day of back-to-back student recitals performed in support of the Lucy Moses School Scholarship Fund. The Play-a-thon brings students, families, and friends together to give back to the community and support each other’s musical achievements. All funds raised provide scholarships to students in need. Click here to see photos from the 2020 Play-a-thon!
