Criterion Goes Pops

BAR HARBOR — Rebecca Edmondson of Bar Harbor has announced the formation of TEMPO, The Eastern Maine Pops Orchestra to MDI middle school and High School orchestra students.

She also will be reaching beyond the MDI community to find promising musicians.


TEMPO will be headquartered at the Criterion Theatre.

Rehearsals will begin in April 2011, with audition dates still to be determined. “This is an exciting collaboration for us” says Rob Jordan of the Criterion Theatre and Arts Center. “Part of our mission is to provide a home for local performing artists, these musicians are our future, anything we can do to promote them and advance their passion for music will enrich us all.”
