As part of the community outreach programs at UMass Lowell, New England Youth Wind Ensembles (NEYWE) offer an Honors Band program for Junior High School and Senior High School students. (Jr. NEYWE, Sr. NEWYE).

NEYWE offers unique opportunities for students to engage in after school music with peers of diverse backgrounds and varied levels of prowess. College music majors volunteer as section coaches and perform with the ensembles. Over 100 participants build self-confidence and self-esteem, further musicianship, and improve individual musical skills in an environment of teamwork and learning.

Our desire is to provide this experience regardless of financial ability.  Please consider a donation! Your contribution will provide scholarship money for students who could not otherwise afford to attend. Thank you.
