The Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony (AYWS) was founded in 1988 as the premier honor wind ensemble for high school youth in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Its purposes are to provide a positive musical experience in an artistic environment for advanced instrumentalists in wind and percussion performance, and to supplement the outstanding music education programs in the public and private schools in the region. The AYWS rehearses and performs grade five and six (collegiate and professional) original wind band literature composed over a wide span of stylistic compositional periods. As an ensemble, it is one of the most visible ambassadors of culture and youth performance for the city of Atlanta and state of Georgia.
Thank you to everyone for auditioning for the 2013-14 Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony! The panel heard 280 students over eight days, and all auditionees and their teachers, band and orchestra directors, and parents should be congratulated for all of the hard work that went into these fine presentations.
