Temple University Main Campus | Philadelphia, PA

Join us 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 master classes with Temple University faculty and members of The Philadelphia Orchestra. The festival will also include a performance by the Temple University Wind Symphony.

Fee: $600 per ensemble

Limited to the first 10 bands to register with payment.

Scheduling: Registered ensembles will receive a questionnaire in January asking for their top three (3) time slot preferences. There are four (4) morning performance times and six (6) afternoon performance times. While we cannot guarantee a specific time slot, in many cases we are able to honor preferences. It is our hope that ensembles will remain on campus for either the master classes or the Temple University Wind Symphony performance as we believe these are important components of the festival experience.
