Welcome to the IYWS!

“I look back very fondly on my time in the [IYWS] and I can testify that it made me a better musician and helped prepare me for my future career in music.” –Matt Evans, Saxophonist with The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own”

I would strongly encourage high school students to be involved in IYWS. My experience helped prepare me to play at a collegiate level and gave me friendships that will last a lifetime.” –Clair Dalder
