The Western Youth Wind Ensemble (WYWE) is a program for young musicians in Grades 10-12 who want to continue their musical development by working in an honour band-like environment. Students receive high-level instruction from Western University faculty members in rehearsals and sectionals and are able to develop relationships with like-minded peers.
