Chester County Youth Wind Ensemble

Welcome to the home of the Chester County Youth Wind Ensemble!

The ChescoYWE is an ensemble open to woodwind, brass, and percussion players up to 8th grade, residing in or around Chester County, Pennsylvania. The purpose of this ensemble is to provide playing and performance opportunities to students outside of their regular school ensembles. Students are accepted into the ensemble pending an audition. Auditions will take place in June/September and again in January (for new members only). 

Electronic auditions are now being accepted for our Fall 2019 season. Please follow the link to the left for details on the audition process.  We currently have needs in the following sections: oboe, bassoon, clarinet, trumpet, French horn, trombone, and euphonium/baritone.

The ChescoYWE rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 at Fugett Middle School, in West Chester. Rehearsals for our Fall 2019 season will begin on September 3.

There are two concerts each year - one in December and one in April.
