To audition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be contacted and notified of our audition procedures. If you do not see an opening, and would like to be considered when a vacancy occurs, please contact us and we will reach out. We sometimes have mid-season vacancies within the group. Band members are chosen based on musical ability and ability to commit to rehearsal and concert schedule. Openings are only filled with candidates able to meet or exceed the musical expectations of the group. Vacancies will remain open until a qualified candidate is found.
The NSWE season runs from September-May. Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 at Libertyville High School. The band occasionally is invited to do additional performances throughout the year. In April 2018, the NSWE will perform as the invited ensemble for the Chicagoland Invitational Concert Band Festival.
