The Nova Scotia Junior Wind Ensemble is an organization dedicated to encouraging young musicians, both socially and musically. Our goal is to foster a greater love for wind band music and inspire a positive learning environment which students may take back to their home schools.

Slide 1

Are you going into grade 10?

Beginning in grade 10 you may audition for the NSYWE as well! Not ready to "age out" of the NSJWE? You can audition for NSJWE all through Jr. and Sr. High School or audition for both groups and see where the wind takes you!

Who will it be?

Can you guess who our guest conductor will be for the 2021-2022 Season? HINT- According to our past history, it should be a female conductor.


Next Season's rehearsal weekends will be November 5-8, 2021, (Location TBA) and March 4-6, 2022 (Citadel High School).

Auditions are now open!

Auditions are now being accepted for next season. Please forward all application questions to katelyn@nsjwe.ca

I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water. - Ray Charles
