Talking Art with William Campbell

Ways To Subscribe

The latest work by pianist and award-winning composer William Campbell, Together We Rise, will be released on April 28, 2023.

Inspired by his hope that societies can work together for justice and the common good, this reverential album combines virtuosic piano and electronics to create a musical soundscape which invites us to reflect on the world around us.

Listen to the conversation here with composer William Campbell about the catalyst behind this concept album of contemporary classical music, the art of composition, and his future plans as he transitions away from his long-time position as Professor of Music at St. Ambrose University to concentrate on composing film scores and concert music.

An album release party will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2023, at the Galvin Fine Arts Center at St. Ambrose University in Davenport. Tickets can be obtained here.

You can purchase the album Together We Rise on iTunes or on Bandcamp.
