Temple Performing Arts Center

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 performances by the Temple University Symphonic Band and Wind Symphony.

Fee: $500 per ensemble

Scheduling: While we will ask for time slot preferences and try to honor them when possible, 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 master classes.
