Cincinnati Youth Wind Ensemble
In partnership with CCM’s collegiate Wind Studies, Music Education and Jazz programs, CCM Preparatory presents the only comprehensive ensemble program for winds and percussion students in the greater Cincinnati area.
There are two ensembles under the Cincinnati Youth Wind Ensemble that are opn to students in 9th through 12th grades:
- Advanced level Wind Ensemble
- Large Symphonic Band
Students will register for one class accordingly, depending on the results of their auditions. The ensembles are for musicians who play flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, string bass and percussion. Both ensembles are skill-enhancing and enriching experiences that supplement but do 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. This is an auditioned ensemble.
