PSYWE_oct2015-64PSYWE_oct2015-23PSWYE2015-65PSWYE2015-45The Puget Sound Youth Wind Ensemble (PSYWE) has grown from a small idea tossed around between colleagues to a program reaching young talented young musicians throughout the Puget Sound region.

PSYWE is celebrating its twelfth year. The organization is dedicated to advancing the talents of young wind ensemble musicians striving to expand their musical skills. PSYWE tackles demanding literature, setting high expectations for the participants and providing rehearsal skills that support the bands of the public and private schools they attend.

The Board of Directors volunteer outside of their full-time jobs to help make PSYWE possible for these remarkable students. Many generous parents and community members donate their time and resources, making a daily difference in the success of the PSYWE. Conductor Dr. John Falskow holds the highest standard of musicality and gives the wonderful gift of education by sharing his musical knowledge with these students on a weekly basis.

We hope as you explore our website you will see what a unique and truly worthwhile experience PSYWE PSWYE2015-52-2offers 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!
