We invest in things we care about
— James Brice, Musical Director
 
 

The Castle Hill RSL North West Wind Ensemble (NWWE) was born in 2003 and has grown to become one of Australia’s finest and most reputable wind orchestras. 

With performance credentials of 12 NSW State and 7 Australian National Championship title performances, previous International CD release of ‘Wild Nights’ in 2008, recordings for Manhattan Beach Music, Reed Music, ABODA -NSW Good Music Guide (Parts 1 & 2), and a host of reference recordings for fellow Australian composers, the NWWE are earnestly committed in showcasing extraordinary Wind Orchestra literature and transcriptions from composers and arrangers around the world.  

Under the baton of their Musical and Artistic Director Mr. James Brice, the NWWE is an exceptionally active and highly dedicated ‘professionally recognised’ community band, drawing their players from a wide variety of settings. Many members are graduates from the nationally acclaimed Castle Hill RSL Youth Wind Orchestra (YWO), tertiary students, Sydney Conservatorium graduates, talented community musicians from varied and diverse occupations, and many local music teachers.

The NWWE has gained and retained their international reputation as one of Australia’s premier wind orchestras, renowned for their interpretation of classic and new wind band and orchestral literature, whilst dedicated to the exposure and promotion of new Australian works for wind orchestra as part of their standard repertoire.
