Oklahoma Youth Winds (OYW)


Founded in 2004, Oklahoma Youth Winds (OYW) is made up of talented high school wind and percussion students. This challenging honor wind 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. OYW has been invited to perform as an Honor Ensemble at the Oklahoma Music Educators Association annual in-service three times since 2013.


The conductor, since its inception, is Dr. Matthew Mailman. OYW rehearses in-person every-other Monday evening on Schedule B, beginning October 19 in the Commons Room at Crossings Christian School, Upper School from 5:30 – 6:45PM. (Updated 10/9)
