NEW ENGLAND YOUTH WIND ENSEMBLES

Music Program Summary
The concert band program NEYWE (New England Youth Wind Ensembles) were created in 2000 at the request of community music educators to fill a specific need: to provide high quality instrumental music instruction in a wind-band setting for public, private and home-schooled instrumental students ages 12-19. NEYWE offers unique opportunities for students to engage in after school music with peers of diverse backgrounds and varied levels of prowess. Over 120 participants build self-confidence and self-esteem, further musicianship, and improve individual musical skills in an environment of teamwork and learning
Under the baton of University of Massachusetts Lowell faculty, students are exposed to commissioned works, perform with soloists and are coached by college musicians. Emphasis is placed on educational and artistic development as well as ensemble technique. Repertoire is chosen from diverse periods and styles, adjusted to meet the proficiency of participants. The fifteen week program culminates in concerts free and open to the community. Applications can be found at www.neywe.org
