Welcome to CYWS!

The Cleveland Youth Wind Symphony is the premier youth wind ensemble in Northeast Ohio. We are proud to provide an outstanding musical experience for exemplary young musicians. Since 1989, we have been working to supplement local school music programs, while creating lifelong musical memories for students.

For the past 32 seasons, we have been performing at Severance Music Center and around the world! Join as a student musician, or become an inaugural donor and support us as we continue our work as a nonprofit organization.

Auditions for the 2022-2023 season are coming in May 2022!
