MICHELLE CAMPBELL
As one of Chicago’s most in-demand harpists, Michelle Campbell has
performed at top venues and theaters like the Goodman Theatre, Millennium Park, Copernicus Center, Mercury Theatre and the Lyon & Healy Recital Hall. She is a regular performer for the Emanation Concert Series held throughout the city and is the resident harpist for The Langham Chicago and The Four Seasons.

Michelle currently instructs harp at the Westside Instructional String and Harp Program, a music initiative by Chicago West Community Music Center.

Michelle earned a Bachelors of Music degree from the University of
Michigan and a Masters of Music degree from Northern Illinois University.

CHRISTOPHER RIGGS plays free improvisation on the electric guitar. Without the use of processing or FX, Christopher squeezes sounds from his instrument the Chicago Reader has called "unapologetically ugly". Riggs received his Bachelor of Music in 2007 from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and his Master of Arts in Music Composition from Wesleyan University in 2012. He studied guitar and composition under Marc Michaud, Ross Feller, Randolph Coleman, and Ronald Kuivila.
