The Swinging Owls Campus Jazz Band is a traditional big band that is comprised of community members from the Greater Philadelphia area along with Temple University students and staff. Repertory performed includes standard big band literature. Membership in the Swinging Owls requires no audition, however, participants need to be able to read music and have use of personally owned or rented instruments. At the end of each semester the "Swinging Owls" will give a culminating performance on Temple University's main campus.
The ensemble meets one evening per week, totaling two hours of rehearsal. Depending on enrollment, instrumentation and availability, students will be assigned to one of two bands, meeting 6:00-8:00pm or 8:00-10:00pm.
