The Youth Wind Symphony (YWS) is the flagship ensemble of the band program. It is open to advanced woodwind, percussion, and brass players in grades 9-12 and performs level V and VI wind ensemble repertoire.

2020-21 Youth Winds

The Hochstein School is announcing a delay in the registration process for the Youth Wind Symphony, which is currently scheduled for five Saturdays, January 2-30, 2021. Due to the uncertain circumstances that we may face in January, we have decided to wait before calling for applications from both new and returning students.

Depending on the development of distancing regulations for wind players and limits on the size and duration of rehearsals, we may find it necessary to postpone the dates of the Wind Symphony to later in the spring. We hope to be in touch again by the middle of November with more details about rehearsal and concert dates and the application process.

We thank you for sharing your talents with us this year and look forward to a safe return to the stage for the Youth Wind Symphony in 2021.
