A note from a Wind Ensemble parent:

"I just paid the invoice for the Youth Wind Ensemble and I have to say it was the best  investment I've had in a long time! My daughter played flute in symphonic winds. She was challenged by the music, learned so much and loved it. I'm sure it was a factor that helped her make into our high school's Wind Ensemble next year as a freshman. Thank you and your great staff for doing such a fantastic job!" 

Youth Honors Wind Ensemble

For students grades 6 through 12

Our Youth Honors Wind Ensemble Program for woodwind, brass and percussionists, provides talented young musicians with opportunities to expand and strengthen their musical skills and knowledge. The ensembles are designed to be supplemental to area school programs, and it is expected that all members play in their own school ensembles, where they exist. In addition, members are encouraged to participate in as many school musical activities as possible to increase their playing experience. New members are accepted each September and January. This is the first wind ensemble program in Northeastern Ohio that targets this specific age group.
