ELLSWORTH - TEMPO (The Eastern Maine Pops Orchestra for Young Musicians), under the direction of Rebecca Edmondson, will showcase music that is as bright and as merry as the Holiday season itself when they present their 'Holiday Cheer' concert at The Grand on Saturday, Dec. 7  at 7 p.m. Tickets are general admission seating with $9 for adults/seniors and $5 for youth (12 and under) and are available at The Grand box office (667-9500) or online at  

From their live scoring of a timeless silent film classic to their participation in an event honoring our country's veterans, TEMPO has made their home at The Grand since 2012, providing young musicians an opportunity to enhance their skills through performance. Made up of advanced players who hail from near and far parts of our state, TEMPO's annual Holiday concert at The Grand includes such highlights as music from 'The Polar Express' by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard, the 'Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy' and 'Waltz of the Flowers' from Tchaikovsky's 'Nutcracker Ballet' as well as classic holiday tunes like 'It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year' and 'Oh Holy Night.'

So bring a friend and share the experience of seeing and hearing young musicians from all over the state of Maine bring 'Holiday Cheer' to the Grand stage!

The Grand is proud to be the home of TEMPO The Eastern Maine Pops Orchestra for Young Musicians and their 2013/14 season including their 'Holiday Cheer' concert as well as 'The 2nd Annual Silent Film Event,' where TEMPO plays an original score by orchestra leader Rebecca Edmondson as an accompaniment to a screening of Buster Keaton's silent comedy classic 'The General' on Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. For more information on any of these productions, please call the box office at (207) 667-9500.
