The Temple Night Owl Band is the university's very own community band in the great tradition of town, block, and neighborhood bands here and abroad. Monday, April 29, is the semester-ending concert for the band at the Temple Performing Arts Center. Euphonium player Stuard Young, a retired music teacher, is one of the many community members sitting next to Temple students, music and nonmusic alike. The Night Owls were hatched by Deborah A. Sheldon, professor of music education at Temple. "I do music every day as my livelihood, but sometimes you forget all the different ways it makes a difference in people's lives," she said.
