We will be continuing with the Youth Wind Ensemble of Westchester for the 2021-2022 season, and our plan as of now is to meet in person for rehearsals. 


We will be meeting at Ossining High School on Thursdays, as in the past. Our Junior Winds will meet from 5:00pm-6:30pm and the Senior Winds will meet from 7:00pm-9:00pm.


We will need to follow all COVID precautions that the Ossining schools have in place. Currently, this means that all students will need to wear masks at all times inside the building. While playing, students will also need covers on the bell of their instruments. YWEW will not be able to provide these, and it is expected that students provide their own. You may purchase special face masks and instrument covers in a variety of places online, or your child may be provided one by their school. A few different face masks are available for purchase here. Instrument Covers are available here. (Woodwind Players - you do not need to bag your instrument, a cover for the bell or end of the foot joint is sufficient. Flutes, we can show you how to adjust face masks to cover the lip plate area of the instrument for playing).
