Hailed as a “brilliant pianist” (Financial Times), Kate Campbell performs frequently as a soloist and chamber musician specializing in 20th and 21st century music, and is at home with styles ranging from thorny modernism, to “sleek and spirited” minimalism, to indie classical.
In addition to her work with SFCMP, Kate is the pianist for the Eco Ensemble in Berkeley, and co-founder and pianist of the interdisciplinary duo K A T E S, which intertwines new solo piano music and new dance. As the pianist in the contemporary ensemble REDSHIFT, this year she will continue a guest artist residency at California State University East Bay, premiering works by faculty and student composers. She is also proud to be one of the founding organizers of the Omaha Under the Radar Festival, featuring new music, dance, and theater in her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.
Kate serves on the faculty of Mills College. She was recently honored as a distinguished fellow at Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts. She can be heard on New Amsterdam Records, Pinna Records, and New Focus Recordings. Kate joined SFCMP in 2013.
