Unisa concert series: Colin Campbell

ZK Matthews Great Hall
20 November: 16h00
Tickets: R80 (R60 for students and pensioners)

Organist Colin Campbell from Potchefstroom will give the last solo recital of the Unisa Music Foundation Concert Series for this year.

The concert, scheduled for 20 November at 16:00 in the ZK Matthews Great Hall has a programme that promises to showcase the marvelous Rieger concert organ of Unisa.

It consists of the Toccata and fugue in D minor, BWV 538 (Bach), Prelude and fugue on B-A-C-H (Liszt), Suite Gothique (Boëlmann ), the première of the Sonata in D (Temmingh), Chorale no 2 in B minor (Franck) and the Finale from Symphony no 1 (Vierne).

Campbell graduated from the University of Port Elizabeth and furthered his organ studies in Utrecht, in the Netherlands. His research focus is in the area of church music, especially in the missional context in the South African communities. He is currently completing his Ph.D. in this field.

During 2010, Colin was a visiting short-term research fellow at the Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota USA.

He was a senior lecturer at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University’s Department of Music, where he also acted as Deputy Director and Programme Leader. During his tenure over a period of 14 years, he established a reputation as pipe organ lecturer of note, his students consistently receiving awards for their excellence. He joined the North West University in Potchefstroom in May 2008.

Campbell has composed a trio, African Suite for violin, clarinet and piano that was premiered earlier this year.

Tickets for this event are sold only at the door at R80 for adults and R60 for students and pensioners.
