Administrative history

The UpStream Music Association (UMA) is a new music collective of performers and composers from the Halifax, Nova Scotia area. The association was inspired by a series of informal improvisation sessions in the spring of 1989 and became a non-profit charitable organization after its incorporation on April 4, 1990, shortly before the first performance of the Upstream Ensemble. The founding members of UMA were Steve Tittle, Bob Bauer, Tom Roach, Jeff Reilly, Steven Naylor, Sandy Moore, Paul Cram, and Don Palmer. The UMA is still an active arts organization in Halifax.

Custodial history

Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives in accession (2011-053) in December 2011.
