Temple University Wind Symphony and Diamond Marching Band

Founded in 1925, the Temple University Bands have enjoyed over 90 years of excellence in musical performance from concert halls to athletic venues. Temple University Bands comprise the Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, Collegiate Band, Diamond Marching and Basketball Bands, and the Night Owls Campus/Community Band. The mission of the Temple University Bands is to provide a musically diverse and exciting experience of the highest quality to students, audiences, and fans. The University Bands play a large role in the musical life of the campus and the Philadelphia area.

Temple University Bands welcome instrumental performers from all colleges, schools, and campuses of the university, as well as community members. Participation provides great opportunity for musical growth, contribution toward rich Temple University traditions, and an occasion to meet other musicians and develop friendships. Membership in the Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, Diamond Marching Band, and Basketball Band requires an audition and faculty approval; membership in the Collegiate Band and Night Owls Campus/Community Band requires no audition. See descriptions of each band under the Ensembles tab.
