Tamara McLeod is a composer and pianist from Denver, Colorado with a Ukrainian heritage. Tamara’s composing is derived from her inner-muse that is informed by personal experiences and deep emotional reflection. A recent concert that Tamara curated and collaborated on by composing for her performer friends was an intimate chamber night with the intention of creating an ambient emotional space. In the summer of 2018 and 2019, Tamara attended the European American Music Alliance summer program in Paris, France. Recently in the summer of 2020, Tamara attended the Fresh Inc Festival as a composer participant that resulted in a live-streamed world-premiere of her piece “Vertigo” for piano, flute, and cello. In the spring of 2020, Tamara composed her first choral work using the text of Garcia Lorca that received the recognition of second place in the biennial competition hosted by the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Tamara also pursued intensive studies in piano privately for many years with Juilliard-trained professor Dr. Tamara Goldstein as well as with internationally acclaimed concert pianist Artur Stoyanov from the Tchaikovsky Conservatory. Tamara is currently studying music composition with composer David Garner at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music as she completes her undergraduate studies with a major in composition. Aside from her composing, Tamara enjoys spending a considerable time in nature and reading or writing poetry.
