TEMPO New Music Ensemble - in aeternum

Where: Clarice Smith PAC : free admission - no tickets required : Gildenhorn Recital Hall
Event Type(s): Concert

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 second call for musical scores this spring and received over 100 pieces from students across the world! Works to be performed include the winning piece chosen from our call by Canadian student composer, Lucas Oickle, Earl Kim, Mikolaj Gorecki, Toru Takemitsu, and Joseph Schwantner.

The purpose of the concert will be to introduce the music of important contemporary composers to the university community and encourage interdisciplinary dialogue. TEMPO has produced a concert every semester since the fall of 2008. Admission is free and attendance fulfills a concert-reporting requirement for students taking music courses. We foresee attendance by a mixture of faculty, staff, graduate students, undergraduates, and community members. A reception will follow the performance.
