Concert Band Festival | Marching Band Day | Wind Conducting and Teaching Workshop



Thank you to all the Bands who performed at the 2018 TU Band Festival!

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, and Nathan Buonviri, as well as Temple’s applied faculty, many of whom are members of the Philadelphia Orchestra. 

Participation in the Concert Band Festival has included:

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).

2018 Schedule of the Day -
8:30am - 2:30pm: Band Performances and Clinics in TPAC, Tours of Campus, Lunch, and Listening to other Band Performances

3:00 - 4:00pm: Master Classes with Applied Faculty in Presser and Rock Halls

7:30pm: Temple University Wind Symphony Concert

The participation fee is TBD per band, paid before Festival. This fee covers recording, materials, facility, and master class costs.

A full complement of large percussion equipment and a grand piano will be available.

Watch for the date of the 2019 TU Band Festival to be posted in the Fall.
