Pianist Kate Campbell performs frequently as a soloist and chamber musician specializing in contemporary music and interdisciplinary projects. She is at home with styles ranging from thorny modernism to “sleek and spirited” minimalism (San Francisco Chronicle). She is the pianist for Eco Ensemble in Berkeley, and co-founder and pianist of the interdisciplinary duo K A T E S, which intertwines new solo piano music with new dance. She is also one of the founding organizers for Omaha Under The Radar Festival, featuring new music, dance, and theater in her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. Her recordings can be heard on New Amsterdam Records, Pinna Records, and New Focus Recordings.
As an in-demand collaborative pianist, Kate has had the pleasure of working with many of the Bay Area’s top institutions, including the San Francisco Girls Chorus, West Edge Opera, UC Berkeley, Sacred & Profane, San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and at Mills College, where she serves on the faculty. Kate joined SFCMP in 2013.
