Electrify Your Symphony! (EYS) is a music education phenomenon that FIRES UP students, teachers, and local communities by injecting a high voltage dose of energy and much-needed funding into a school’s music education program. This intensive experience boosts student self-esteem and motivation, increases school-wide, family and community engagement, and helps raise money for participating schools.


Created by international recording artist, electric violinist, and music education advocate Mark Wood, EYS accomplishes this by having our team of teaching artists work with orchestra, choir, and band students to put on real life, real world rock concerts at their schools, local theaters, or arenas; with ticket sales directly benefiting the participating music departments.

Electrifying stages since 2015, Westport’s ground-breaking electric orchestra – the Rock N’ Warhawks introduces the kids to a variety of rock, pop, and classical music in an electric setting. Students play on electric instruments and experiment with all of the sounds that these instruments can produce. Students also spend a lot of time in this class learning to improvise and to create their own music. Not only do the students in the electric orchestra play the music, they also learn choreography and floor movements that go along with what they are playing.


The Westport Orchestra is the most technologically advanced orchestra program in Louisville today and is widely known throughout the country for its highly skilled and diversity of talent. The Rock N’ Warhawks Electric Orchestra performs at various school and community activities and conferences in Louisville and statewide. The orchestra has created several music videos, which has been featured on Louisville news stations on multiple occasions. The music videos are also featured on the Orchestra’s website and YouTube.
