The Northern Sydney Symphonic Wind Ensemble (NSSWE) was established in early 2010 by our Artistic Director Patrick Brennan as an extension program for student musicians who play woodwind, brass or percussion in their school band programs across the Northern Sydney region.
NSSWE is about Community, Performance, Development and Fun!
NSSWE aims to complement and enhance the school band programs by challenging those students who have gained a high degree of musical proficiency.
The program provides students with opportunities for extension as they:
- perform a musical repertoire of a very high standard, in professional and public venues such as The Concourse in Chatswood;
- develop their musical skills and talent under the direction of highly qualified conductors;
- share their love of music with like-minded peers through social interaction;
- tour with their ensemble taking NSSWE out into the community through unique performance opportunities.
