Cincinnati Junior 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.

The Cincinnati Junior Youth Wind Ensemble (Jr. CYWE) is for students in 6th through 8th grades who play flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba and percussion — and who have been playing their instruments for at least two years.

Jr. CYWE is designed to be an enhancing and enriching experience for area students, and is designed to supplement (not replace) students’ experience in their own school bands. Jr. CYWE rehearses once a week. The ensemble performs two full-band concerts with CYWE each year.
