Golden State Youth Orchestra Website
Stoverpix worked with Graybird Foundation to launch a new, modern and responsive website for Golden State Youth Orchestra — formerly El Camino Youth Symphony and migrate the content from the previous dated CRM platform into WordPress and leverage the power and page building capabilities of the DIVI theme.
As an event driven learning organization we leveraged the Events Manager plugin to achieve very specialized event pages, listings and Feature event rows with precision across devices like on the homepage. Stoverpix created easy to use templates (custom library modules) to quickly and easily implement and manage complex design structures via one post id change and a few image swops. Less than 1 minute to change an event row to a new event.
Notable features of the website include:
- Easy to update/manage Ken Burns style hero banner optimized for all devices.
- Homepage events feature rows with built-in, auto optimized features which completely reformats content for mobile devices. Try it out… just make your browser window narrow to experience.
- Custom WooCommerce Store integrated with events as well as Tchotchkes as well as performance ticket purchases.
- Integration with the existing CRM to retain membership data with existing members.

Golden State Youth Orchestra (GSYO) previously El Camino Youth Symphony (ECYS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1963 by William Galbraith, a young maestro who envisioned an orchestra that would give youth musicians the opportunity to perform challenging standard professional repertoire.
In 1965, Robert Sayre, then principal cellist with the San Francisco Symphony, became one of the first professional musicians to perform with GSYO. Since then, GSYO has continued to invite artists of international stature to perform as guest soloists with our highest level ensemble Senior Symphony.
