A few of our EFYCO members had some fun last weekend at Mountain Lakes Resort! We played A LOT of chamber music, started preparing all the music for this semester and spent some quality time together too. Music friends are for life! ❤️🎻🎶

Edit: We also might have gone to Babyland...😄

Concert #2 this week at Chattahoochee Elementary! I love that we barely fit in the picture and on our stage! Thank you, Little Mill Middle and East Forsyth Youth and Community Orchestra members who came to play along and support the elementary orchestra students. ❤️ Also, extra thank yous to Rachel Kenney, Jenny Zimler, Tanna Shoffeitt Savage, Kristina Kool, and Sheralyn Shadle for helping to get all those instruments in tune, serving pizza and cookies to a bunch of hungry kids, and for getting us all cleaned up at the end. ❤️❤️❤️

, the Mondays in the school year are slowing counting down... but we still have some awesome ensembles to feature!

This week our is the East Forsyth Cluster Orchestra!

The East Forsyth Cluster Orchestras are located in East Forsyth County in Cu***ng/Gainesville, GA and consist of before and after school string orchestra clubs at Chattahoochee and Chestatee Elementary schools, Little Mill Middle School , and East Forsyth High School. The program started in 2015 at Chattahoochee Elementary with 25 students and has expanded into the rest of the East Cluster schools since then with over 150 students and community members participating, despite the absence of string orchestra classes during the school day. Pictured is our East Forsyth Youth & Community Orchestra which includes both adult community members as well as elementary, middle, and high school students making music and memories together.

On Sunday, April 30, 2023 at 4pm, the East Forsyth Orchestras will perform movie music favorites by John Williams at the First Baptist Church in Cu***ng as a fundraiser for our new United Forsyth Orchestra Fund in support of orchestra programs in Forsyth County Schools and the community.

EFYCO Family Spotlight:

The Elwoods!

Allison Elwood is a 6th grade Little Mill Middle School student and has been playing violin for 6 years. She also plays softball and is involved in chorus at school. Allison, Tyler, and their dad love to watch movies together. Marvel movies are some of her favorite. She's looking forward to the upcoming John Williams concert because it's both challenging but equally entertaining.

Tyler Elwood is a 10th grade baseball player and construction pathway student at East Forsyth and enjoys the outdoors. Tyler has played both cello and piano, but also enjoys teaching himself guitar. Tyler helps with bass guitar and percussion in EFYCO.

Lonnie Elwood loves to volunteer his time to help others, especially when it's an activity that can bring him together with the family. He especially loves when he's given the opportunity to play percussion along with the orchestra.

Jennifer Elwood has been an integral part in the start-up of the United Forsyth Orchestra Fund and is one of the biggest supporters of the orchestra program in the East Forsyth Cluster. We can also always count on Jennifer to pick up the Costco cakes for orchestra events...😂

We ❤️ the Elwood family and all they bring to EFYCO and the community.
