The Atlanta Junior Chamber Orchestra



The AJCO, under the leadership of director Georgia Ekonomou, is a 50 piece String Orchestra composed of the top 6th-9th grade musicians in the Atlanta area.  Now in its eighth season, the orchestra has received recognition for its musical excellence, and provides an exciting opportunity for young musicians.  Students benefit from weekly rehearsals, which include sectionals with professional musicians in the Atlanta area.  The orchestra performs with the Emory Youth Symphony Orchestra at the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, Emory University.


“AJCO is my musical family, teaching me everything I need to know, motivating me and so much more I can’t even write. When I walk into that building, there’s always a smile on my face because I know AJCO is making me the best I can be.”
