TEMPO is a contemporary music ensemble run entirely by graduate students of the University of Maryland School of Music. Concerts specialize in performance of music written post-1950.
TEMPO had its first call for musical scores this fall and received music from students across the world! Works to be performed include the two winning pieces chosen from our call, one work by future graduate student Petra Anderson and works by American born composers Margaret Brouwer and Roy Harris.
Through our concerts we hope to introduce the university community and concert goers to contemporary composers and to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue. TEMPO has produced a concert every semester since Fall 2008.
