ECO – Emmanuel Christian Orchestra

Welcome to the home of the Emmanuel Christian Orchestra (ECO)

ECO is a small but vibrant high school concert band program that meets every Tuesday after school to rehearse a variety of musical styles and genres to the praise and glory of God! We love making music together, building our repertoire while at the same time building relationships, teamwork, and a sense of community at our Christian high school in Fergus, ON.

This year, we have roughly 30 students, 2 parents, 1 director, 10 types of wind instruments, and 4 percussionists (playing lots of percussion), all hailing from Guelph, Fergus, Elora, Grand Valley, Orangeville, and the surrounding countryside!

In addition to our weekly rehearsal, we play at school assemblies, local community and fundraising events, make guest performances at concerts in the Wellington-Dufferin county region, and host at least 2 concerts each year to raise funds for the ECHS music program as well as local and international charities!


If you are interested in supporting ECO or the ECHS Music Program financially, we will gladly issue you a tax receipt!!  Cheques can be made out to “ECHS” with the specified purpose in the Memo.  For more details, contact a member of our Board of Directors:

Theresa Westrik (Chair), Trish Van Dyk (Treasurer), Nancy Vink (Secretary), Laura Meerstra (Librarian), or Stephen DeBoer (Artistic Director)
