Together We Rise
April 29 @ 7:30 pm
Together We Rise is the album release concert for Campbell’s exciting new album that fuses solo piano with synthesizers and electronics. It’s 44 minutes of epic, virtuosic tracks and quiet music for inner growth. Bringing together aspects of his well known film scores and his solo piano music, Campbell weaves these parts together in a unique musical experience. “This music was inspired by my hope that we can all work for the common good and justice for everyone within our society. It’s a concept album about an individual finding their personal strength to move forward in confidence, rising up and lifting up others.” Join us at the Galvin Fine Arts Center for this engaging experience!
