Friday, April 22, 2022
Temple Performing Arts Center

Join us on Friday, April 22, 2022 for our annual Festival of Winds, co-sponsored by the Temple University Bands and Music Education Department. Participating ensembles will perform on stage in the beautiful Temple Performing Arts Center, receive recorded feedback and a post-performance clinic from outstanding music educators, and participate in masterclasses with Temple faculty and members of the Philadelphia Orchestra. The festival will also include performances by the Temple University Symphonic Band and Wind Symphony.

Fee: $500 per ensemble

Scheduling: While we will try to honor morning or afternoon time slot requests, we cannot guarantee a specific performance time. Ensembles performing in the morning are strongly encouraged to remain on campus for the midday Symphonic Band performance, while ensembles performing in the afternoon are strongly encouraged to remain on campus for the evening Wind Symphony performance as we believe these concerts are an important part of the festival experience. All students are also encouraged to participate in the masterclasses.
