JUNIOR ORCHESTRA OF YAMHILL COUNTY with Danielle Howard

Since 2017, JOY has been devoted to creating access to music and strings education to youth in Yamhill County. Working with the school district, we provide In-School Violin education for Kindergarten and First Grade. In Second Grade, students continue in our After-School Orchestra with the choice of violin, viola, or cello. We plan to continue the After-School Orchestra through Fifth Grade to prepare our students to join the middle school orchestra program. As of April 2020, we serve 225 K-2 students at Edwards Elementary in Newberg, Oregon. We project to have around 260 students involved with JOY in the 2020-2021 school year serving grades K-3.

OUR MISSION

The Junior Orchestra of Yamhill County (JOY) transforms the lives of underserved youth in Yamhill County through high-caliber, intensive orchestral music instruction through emphasizing teamwork and collaboration, promoting student  creativity, and engaging the community.

JOY is inspired by the El Sistema movement, which started in Venezuela in 1975, to harness the power of music for social change. JOY’s vision is to establish youth orchestra programs throughout Yamhill County.
