The one-day high school band festival, sponsored by the Boyer College of Music and Dance Band Department and Music Education Department, will be held on Temple University’s Main Campus. This non-competitive event will emphasize performance and education by providing students and directors from high school band programs the opportunity to receive feedback and work directly with Boyer College Band and Music Education faculty Matthew Brunner, Nathan Buonviri, and Emily Threinen, as well as Temple’s applied faculty, many of whom are members of the Philadelphia Orchestra, listed below. 

Participation in the Concert Band Festival includes:

Bands are scheduled to perform 20 minutes of music (directors choice) and receive a 20 minute clinic by Boyer College faculty in the Temple Performing Arts Center.

All students and faculty are on their own for meals during the day. There are many convenient and affordable meal options on campus (food trucks, dining halls, fast food, and student center food court).
