Kate Campbell

Kate Campbell

Hailed as a "brilliant pianist" (Financial Times), Kate Campbell performs frequently as a soloist and chamber musician specializing in 20th and 21st century music. She has worked closely with many of the most prominent composers of our time, and is at home with styles ranging from thorny modernism to "sleek and spirited" minimalism (SF Chronicle).

Kate is the pianist for the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players under the direction of Steve Schick, and the Eco Ensemble in Berkeley, CA. She is the co-founder and pianist of the interdisciplinary duo K A T E S, which intertwines new solo piano music with new dance. The duo has been featured at NYSoundCircuit, Dance Conversations Festival at the Flea Theater in New York, and will be in residence at Avaloch Farm Music Institute in Fall 2017. This year she will continue a guest artist residency at California State University East Bay, workshopping and premiering works by faculty and student composers.  She is also proud to be one of the founding organizers for Omaha Under the Radar Festival, featuring new music, dance, and theater in her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. Other recent highlights include an onscreen debut as the toy pianist in Lisa Bielawa's streaming opera Vireo on KCET and KQED, and being honored as a distinguished fellow at Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts.

Kate is on the faculty at Mills College.  She can be heard on New Amsterdam Records, Pinna Records, and New Focus Recordings.
