The members of the CRWE are a diverse group of talented musicians from the greater Boston Metropolitan area. The CRWE provides its members with the opportunity to play quality music in a rigorous, challenging, semi-professional music environment.
We rehearse Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:30 PM at 300 Hammond Pond Parkway, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467.
Are you interested in joining the Charles River Wind Ensemble? There are two ways to join - as a regular member or as a substitute player with the ensemble.
The Charles River Wind Ensemble maintains a roster of substitute players for all instruments. These players are invited to fill in when regular members are unavailable, and can fill in anywhere from one rehearsal to an entire concert cycle. Call players are also generally the first in line to join as regular members of the Charles River Wind Ensemble.

Location: 300 Hammond Pond Parkway, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467

Auditions are conducted with the Music Director of the ensemble, and scheduled regularly.
For CRWE auditions, candidates are asked to prepare two contrasting samples that best represents their current abilities as a performer. In addition to this prepared work, players will be asked to sight-read a selection provided by the Music Director. Percussionists will be asked to perform a sample of their abilities on a number of instruments (battery, keyboard and timpani).
To schedule an audition for an open position or the substitute list, please contact our personnel manager. Be sure to include a brief description of your playing experience. If you play an auxiliary instrument (Eb Clarinet, piccolo, etc.), please mention this in your note to the personnel manager.
