The University of Wyoming Department of Music’s Faculty Recital Series continues with the duo of Katherine McLin and Andrew Campbell Sunday, Sept. 17, at 5 p.m. in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts recital hall. The event is free and open to the public.

The music performance will feature the two Arizona State University (ASU) professors known as a “superb husband/wife team that brings great excitement and artistry through their performances of violin and piano concert literature.” McLin and Campbell have performed together the last 27 years throughout the United States and abroad. They have performed in Oregon, California, Ohio, Nevada, Colorado and Wyoming.

McLin, an ASU violin professor, received her doctorate in violin performance from the University of Michigan. Along with her doctorate, she has received performance degrees from Indiana University and the Oberlin College Conservatory. McLin’s passion for teaching has led her to receive awards from ASU, such as the Evelyn Smith Professorship in Music last year. The award was for a three-year endowed position that recognizes a faculty member who demonstrates outstanding leadership in his or her field.

She is considered a concerto soloist, recitalist, and chamber and orchestral musician. McLin started her music career at age 15, with a debut performance with the Oregon Symphony. Since then, she has made more than 100 appearances as a soloist with orchestras across the country.

Since 2007, McLin has been the concertmaster of the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra in Columbus, Ohio. For three years, she was an orchestral fellowship recipient at the Aspen Music Festival. She has appeared on 20 CD recordings under the Summit, Centaur and Opus One labels.

Her live and recorded performances have been broadcast on National Public Radio’s “Performance Today,” New York City’s WQXR radio station, and local television and radio stations throughout the country. She has served as a guest artist at numerous summer chamber music festivals.

Campbell is a professor of collaborative piano at ASU, and is among the most versatile pianists in the country. He is the director of the Collaborative Piano Program and assistant director for graduate studies. His music career has taken him to six continents, and he has made appearances at the Weill Recital Hall, where The Strad and Strings magazines noted his performance as “excellent.”

Campbell’s most recent appearances have been on a South African tour, highlighted by a recital at the Johannesburg International Mozart Festival, and performances with the Chintimini Chamber Music Festival in Oregon and the Miklin Festival Internacional in Bogota, Colombia. He has collaborated with a variety of artists, such as violinist Chee-Yun, double bassist Catalin Rotaru, flutist Thomas Robertello, bassoonist Judith LeClair, trombonist Charles Vernon, saxophonist Timothy McAllister, composer Bright Sheng and tenor Anthony Dean Griffey.

He has been the opera rehearsal pianist for conductors Andre’ Previn and Placido Domingo, and he worked with the composer Carlisle Floyd on several opera productions. Campbell’s recordings include the Rachmaninoff “Cello Sonata” with bassist Rotaru, praised by two leading international journals, Bass World and XBass.

Campbell has studied with renowned collaborative artist Martin Katz and has made appearances at the International Double Reed Society, where he served as an official pianist. During the summer season, he is director of chamber music for the Saarburg Serenaden and the Vianden International Music Festivals.
