Oklahoma Youth Winds (OYW)


Founded in 2004, the Oklahoma Youth Winds (OYW) is made up of talented high school wind and percussion students to form a challenging honor wind ensemble. This unique ensemble provides experience in musical preparation and performance that students can take to their own high school band programs and exposes students to literature that they may not play in their school programs. 

The conductor, since its inception, is Dr. Matthew Mailman. The OYW rehearses on Monday evenings from 7:30pm – 9:30pm at Oklahoma City University.
