Audition Information for 2019-2020


The Puget Sound Youth Wind Ensemble is dedicated to advancing the talents of young musicians through the performance of quality band repertoire in partnership with faculty of the highest caliber. PSYWE is comprised of exceptionally motivated wind and percussion players from school music programs throughout the Puget Sound region, ages 12 to 21. Members benefit from the personal attention of an expert conductor in a dynamic rehearsal environment that is challenging, nurturing, and educational.

We hope as you explore our web site you will see what a unique and truly worthwhile experience the PSYWE offers to students throughout the Puget Sound region. Please join us at our next concert, or better yet, encourage a young musician to audition for PSYWE!
