Tarn Travers, a professor of violin at the DePauw University School of Music, has been appointed concertmaster of the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra. The announcement follows a national search that began in May.

“The appointment of Tarn Travers as concertmaster of the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra is a critical step in the continued artistic growth of our wonderful orchestra,” Matthew Kraemer, the ICO’s music director, said. “Tarn has displayed his incredible talent on every occasion when performing with the ICO and the respect he has earned from his colleagues is very well placed. His musical intelligence and experience will leave an indelible and immediate mark on our performances.”

The announcement notes, “The concertmaster is an important leader within the orchestra, helping to shape the character and artistry of the ensemble. Travers served as interim ICO Concertmaster following Emily Glover who served as concertmaster between 2013-16.”

Travers performs regularly around the world as a soloist, chamber musician, and an orchestral player.

Travers studied at San Francisco Conservatory, Cleveland Institute of Music and Stony Brook University.
