The Coastal Youth Wind Ensemble (CYWE) is an annual opportunity for outstanding wind and percussion players in the coastal region of the Carolinas to perform significant symphonic band and wind ensemble literature, and to have the experience of rehearsing and performing together on an extended basis.
