Watch for important NSYWE e-mails during week of Sept. 24!

Up to four important e-mails are coming this week!

  1. Information about our 2018 Fall Tour honey fundraiser.
  2. 2018 Fall Tour information, including the schedule, permission form – if you don’t provide a permission slip at the next rehearsal weekend, you won’t be allowed on the tour – and a letter for your school band director; these PDF files are also available on this website.
  3. A reminder letter about submitting your signed NSYWE contract.
  4. A reminder letter for members who have not paid their annual dues or made other arrangements with Hope Gendron.

Do you need a ride to Wolfville or is there room in your car for someone else?

Our first rehearsal weekend is coming up fast: Sept 7-9. We checked and most  hotels, motels and B&Bs are fully booked due to other events at Acadia; some rooms may still be available for Friday evening but that’s it.

If you need a ride, or if you have room in your car for another NSY member, go to the forums – find it under Members in the menu – and let us know.

Like the song says, See You in September!

2018 Repertoire Coming Soon

Dr. Hopkins is finalizing the repertoire for the Fall 2018 season and your music will be posted on this website later this month. We thank you for your patience.

October Weekend Changed

The original schedule included rehearsals during the Thanksgiving weekend. After consulting with the senior management team, members can now spend Thanksgiving with their families. We will rehearse during the October 12-14 weekend; the location remain unchanged: the Dartmouth Music Centre.

Audition Deadline Extended

There were Internet outages today, May 31, that may have impeded some young musicians from uploading their auditions by the end of today deadline.

As a result, NSYWE will continue to accept auditions for a few more days.

We look forward to listening to everyone’s audition recordings, starting next week, and to announcing our 2018-19 ensemble roster in June.

Website Registration

We’re pleased that you found us but it may be too early to register on the website.  Make your application to the NSYWE first and then register on the website.

One thing to remember… The e-mail address you use to register for the NSYWE website must match the e-mail address on your NSYWE application. Website administrators will not approve registrations that do not match with an NSYWE applicant’s e-mail address.

FAQ Added

We just added a Frequently Asked Questions page to the website, under Join NSYWE on the menu.

The FAQ answers questions about the season fee, available financial assistance, travelling to rehearsals and concerts and other need to know stuff.

Check it out.
