Cincinnati Youth Wind Ensemble

For students in 9th - 12th grades

5:30-7:30 p.m., Sunday

Tuition: $300

In partnership with CCM’s Collegiate Wind Studies program and the Music Education division, CCM Preparatory presents the only wind ensemble for high school students in the greater Cincinnati area. The Cincinnati Youth Wind Ensemble (CYWE) is for musicians who play flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, string bass, and percussion. The ensemble brings together students from diverse musical backgrounds to perform quality wind ensemble literature.

The Cincinnati Youth Wind Ensemble is a skill-enhancing and enriching experience that supplements but does not replace students’ experience in their own high school bands. CYWE rehearses once a week and time is divided between full rehearsals, small group sectionals, and chamber ensembles. Attendance is expected at all rehearsals and concerts.

Auditions are required and will be held on September 9, 10 and 11. Click on this link to sign up and view audition requirements.
