Course Description


We're excited to announce that all instruction and ensembles will return to Temple University facilities for Fall 2021, subject to the university's public health protocols.


The Night Owls Campus Community Band (Night Owls) is a large concert wind band. It comprises members from the Greater Philadelphia area and Temple University students and staff. The Night Owls meet Monday evenings 8-10:00pm during the fall and spring semesters. **Members rehearse standard wind literature and crowd-pleasing favorites. At the end of each semester the Night Owls give a performance at the Temple Performing Arts Center on the main campus of Temple University. Membership in the Night Owls requires no audition, however, participants need to be able to read music, have at least two years' experience playing their instrument, and have use of personally owned or rented instruments. 

**Members enrolled in Night Owls for no credit have the option of joining Night Owls virtually. Virtual members will meet over Zoom for rehearsals and participate in the semester hybrid concert by submitting audio recordings and joining the live performance virtually.
