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!

Noelle Wadden

We are very pleased to have Noelle Wadden as our guest conductor for the 2017-18 season. Noelle has been teaching Music in the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board for twenty three years and we can't wait to see what kind of magic she can work with the NSJWE students!

Everyone deserves a chance to perform beautiful music

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
