Campbell is in his third year with the Tucson Philharmonia Youth Orchestra and is currently serving as one of the ensemble's principal percussionists. Last summer, Campbell attended the Brevard Music Festival and had the opportunity to study with renowned percussionists and timpanists from the Houston, Detroit, and Jacksonville Symphonies. Campbell was also accepted into the 2021 Juilliard Percussion Seminar and he was a participant of the Hilton Head Jazz Camp in South Carolina.
This upcoming summer, Campbell will perform in Carnegie Hall and tour to the Dominican Republic as one of the selected percussionists with the National Youth Orchestra 2.
Campbell is currently an 11th grader at Pusch Ridge High School and he first began studying with me as a third grader. During my multiple years in Georgia, Campbell continued with virtual lessons over zoom and continued to win awards and progress exponentially. To watch his growth over the past nine years has been an absolute joy. It is always a privilege to work with students as dedicated and passionate as Campbell.
