Tampering Ensemble gathers together enthusiastic and ambitious musicians who share a strong inspiration to perform and interpret contemporary music. Tampering Ensemble consists of 17 musicians but also performs in smaller chamber music groups and can be expanded to a chamber orchestra. Tampering ensemble has played in Tampering Festival organized by Tampering ry every second year from 2015 onwards. The ensemble has also organized its own concerts and offered many calls for scores for composers in Finland. The ensemble has premiered numerous new works from such Finnish composers as Ilkka Hammo, Timo Kittilä and Henri Sokka but the repertoire also includes notable 20th century classics from Schoenberg to Berio.

Tampering ensemble has become an essential part of the contemporary art music scene in Tampere and attracts both new and already familiar audience. Over the years Tampering Ensemble has collaborated with the Finnish Korvat Auki ry (Society for Contemporary Music), Tampere Biennale and other Finnish festivals. Maja Metelska, Okko Kivikataja, Tuomas Turriago, Markus Yli-Jokipii, and Janne Valkeajoki, to name a few, have been conducting the ensemble.
