Date of Festival:  Saturday, April 18, 2020

You and your ensemble are invited to the annual Festival of Winds on the Temple University campus.  Participating bands will perform on stage in the beautiful Temple Performing Arts Center (TPAC), receive recorded feedback and a post-performance clinic from outstanding music educators, and participate in masterclasses with Temple faculty and members of the Philadelphia Orchestra.  The festival will also include performances by the Temple University Symphonic Band and the Temple University Wind Symphony.

Fee:  $490 per group

Registration:  We are limited to twelve (12) performing ensembles, and spots will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. You may register using the "Apply Now" link below. The first twelve (12) schools to apply will be tentatively registered. Schools attempting to register after the festival is full will be placed on a wait list in order.

The first twelve tentatively registered schools will receive an invoice within 2 business days. Once the invoice is sent out, you will have four weeks to procure payment in one of the following ways:

1. Pay via credit card on the website.
2. Pay via check, made out to Temple University and mailed to: Temple Music Prep, c/o Registrar, 1515 Market St., Suite 501, Philadelphia, PA 19102.
3. Email musicprep@temple.edu or fax (215.204.5495) a copy of a valid PO (to a school district, booster club, etc.) proving that payment is forthcoming.

Once payment (or valid PO) is received, your registration will be considered confirmed. If payment is not received after four weeks, you will be removed from the list and the next ensemble on the wait list will be allowed to register.

Scheduling: While we will try to honor morning or afternoon time slot requests, we cannot guarantee a specific performance time.  Ensembles performing in the morning are strongly encouraged to remain on campus for the 12:45pm Symphonic Band performance, while ensembles performing in the afternoon are strongly encouraged to remain on campus for the 7:30pm Wind Symphony performance as we believe these concerts are an important part of the festival experience.
