East Bay Summer Youth Ensemble Announcements

 

The East Bay Summer Youth Ensemble is beginning its 28th summer season. The East Bay Summer Youth Ensemble is a 93-piece summer wind ensemble which last year performed in the Bristol and Warren Summer Concert Series, a collaborative concert with the Rhode Island Philharmonic Youth Wind Ensemble in Seekonk, MA as well as for the end of the season “A Night at the Pops” Concert in Somerset, MA. The ensemble consists of students from East Providence, Barrington, Bristol, Warren, Portsmouth, Tiverton, Swansea, Somerset, Seekonk and beyond. It is open to students entering grades 7-12 who are serious musicians looking to improve upon their skills over the summer.

 

We will hold our first rehearsal of our 28th season in the band room at Somerset Berkley Regional High School located at 625 County Street in Somerset, MA on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 from 5:45 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Rehearsals are held every Wednesday until mid-August. The band room at SBRHS is perfectly sized for our rehearsals, is acoustically balanced and has plenty of music stands &chairs for everyone. However, we will use the Chorus Room as a storage room for your cases and a staging area for you to get ready for rehearsal. Parents can wait in the hallway and listen to rehearsal. Chairs and wifi are available. As well we have lots of percussion equipment at our disposal! We will have a concert at the Bristol Town Common in July, an early August concert at the Burr’s Hill Bandshell in Warren, R.I. and our season will conclude with a performance at our 13th Annual “A Night at the Pops” Concert on August 2nd.

 

Registration is $50.00 (checks payable to EBSWE) and is due at one of the first two rehearsals.  If for some reason you cannot attend the Wednesday, May 22nd rehearsal, just register at the next rehearsal.  Directions to Somerset Berkley Regional High School are available on the Directions Page within this site. Please bring a pencil to each rehearsal. Also be sure to tell any interested and motivated friends in your band about EBSYE; the more the merrier! Also, information regarding auditions for the EBSWE will be available at the first rehearsal. I hope to see you on May 22nd!
