Biography

Jerry Tabor is an experimental composer of chamber, orchestral, and electroacoustic music. He holds Doctor of Musical Arts and Master of Music degrees in composition from the University of Maryland at College Park, where he studied with esteemed composer and theorist, Thomas DeLio. He earned a Bachelor of Music degree in theory and composition at the University of New Mexico under the guidance of Scott Wilkinson, William Wood, and Christopher Shultis. While at UNM, Tabor met John Cage and participated in master classes with such composers as Milton Babbitt and Michael Colgrass.

Tabor writes music for various instrumental combinations, including orchestra, mixed chamber ensembles, chorus, vocal solo with piano, and jazz ensembles, as well as for the electroacoustic medium. His music has been commissioned by respected performers such as Frank Cox, Thomas Moore, and the Links Ensemble, as well as the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra. A number of Tabor’s compositions are recorded on the Neuma Records label. His 1989 woodwind quintet, “Texture and Color on a Wall”, won the University of New Mexico Composition Competition and his 1994 work for large chamber ensemble, “Ambit”, was a finalist in the ASCAP Foundation Young Composer Competition (1995). As a featured composer at several music festivals and as a guest composer, he has appeared at the John Donald Robb International Composers Symposium (NM), the Western Illinois University New Music Festival, The Electroacoustic Music: The Continuing Tradition conference (MD), the Holy Cross College New Music Festival (MA), George Mason University (VA), SUNY Buffalo, Catholic University (DC), Central Michigan University, and Hartwick College (NY), among others.
