2016-2017 Season Audition Info

Orchestra Dress Rehearsal

As conductor of the Metropolitan Atlanta Youth Wind Ensemble, it is with great enthusiasm that I announce our audition days for the upcoming season of MAYWE: August 28-30, 2016.  Whether it was music of familiar composers like Sibelius, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Grainger, or new music from wind ensemble contemporaries Tyler S. Grant, Aaron Perrine, Rolf Rudin, Steven Bryant, or John Mackey, our student performers gave invigorated, heart-felt, compelling musically expressive performances throughout the entire 2015-2016 season.

I look forward to the continued musical excellence that is the legacy of MAYWE as we prepare for another incredible year of musical exploration. Each of our three concerts are prepared in approximately 6-8 rehearsals. I hope you will consider auditioning to become a part of the 70+ all-state and honor band members from around the entire Atlanta-metro area who are MAYWE.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at
