The National Youth Wind Ensemble of America (NYWE) is excited to announce its inaugural season in 2022. Following a comprehensive audition process, the NYWE will consist of the nation’s premier young wind, brass, and percussion performers. These incredible musicians will spend a week in the nation’s capital, with daily rehearsals led by the 2022 guest conductors, receive daily coachings with professional musicians from the D.C. area, tour the national monuments, experience military band performances at the capital, and attend the Twilight Tattoo. The 2022 experience will culminate in a performance in the historic Warner Theater in Washington D.C. on June 18, 2022.
