This non-competitive event will emphasize performance and education by providing students and directors from high school band programs the opportunity to receive feedback from 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 includes:

Bands are scheduled to perform 20 minutes of music (of the director’s choosing) and receive a 20 minute clinic by Boyer College faculty in TPAC.

Band students are on their own for meals during the day.
