Welcome to the Manhattan Wind Ensemble! Founded in 2007, MWE is a band located in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. As a band of this size and caliber in the Manhattan area, we hope to provide a musical home for professional, non-professional and hobbyist musicians throughout the New York City area.

Mission: A Wind Ensemble for the Manhattan Community that brings together dedicated musicians to learn, grow and perform traditional and modern classical music. The MWE hopes to have an inexpensive place for working adults, professional and non-professional musicians as well as hobbyists to come together as a community. The MWE hopes to have fun while playing challenging music, forming a group that supports and teaches each other as well as growing together. The MWE hopes to perform for the enjoyment of all members of the community in a fun and affordable setting.

We hope that all of our friends, families, and member musicians are doing well in these tough times. We have had to make...

Manhattan Wind Ensemble | A wind ensemble of dedicated musicians in New York, NY

We hope that all of our friends, families, and member musicians are doing well in these tough times.

We have had to make a heartbreaking decision to cancel our Spring concert cycle that had a scheduled concert date of May 16th, 2020.

We are working on future plans and hope everyone stays safe during the current Pandemic of the COVID-19 Virus.

Head on over to our website to listen to some of our music, and learn more about us. Consider making a donation to fund our future projects, including percussion instrument purchases. We will hopefully see you all soon.

My wife and I were at your concert on 23 November ('19) and were thrilled. Has anyone considered doing a chart of Mercury's "Bohemian Rhapsody" for your band? There are several 'symphonic' renditions of this glorious piece on YouTube and I'd love to hear what you guys could do with it.
Does anyone know if there's a recording of their rendition of Balmages' "Rippling Water Colors"? I was moved nearly to tears by its sonorous beauty.
I loved your concert tonight! Superb work! Please continue to make beautiful music :)
My wife and I just got home from your concert tonight. Splendid!! Thank You for existing!! My next trick will be finding your recordings.
Hi loves! Low-key jam session on my roof, come on by Aug 16, byobb (blanket+beer) co-hosted by Kim Ennis
