Manhattan Wind Ensemble

Manhattan Wind Ensemble Sarah Quiroz, Music Director and Conductor

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.
