The National Youth Wind Ensemble of America (NYWE) is excited to announce its inaugural season in 2020. Following a comprehensive audition process, the NYWE will consist of the nation’s premier young musicians. Performers will spend a week in the nation’s capital, with rehearsals led by 2020 guest conductors Colonel Jason K. Fettig, the 28th Director of “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band and Dr. Kevin Sedatole, Director of Bands at Michigan State University. We are hoping to raise funds for participants to cover costs of masterclasses from members of the top Washington D.C. area bands, tour the national monuments, experience military band performances at the capital, attend the Evening Parade, meals, lodging and transportation. The 2020 experience will be from June 16-20th culminating in a performance in the historic Warner Theater in Washington D.C.
