Amidst embracing new students and welcoming back former attendees, Northwestern is gearing up for a season of fresh faces and new ideas. The Back to School Tour features musicians Tim Halperin and David Dunn in Christ Chapel on Monday, September 20 at 8 p.m. The concert is free of charge and open to the public.
An Omaha native, Tim Halperin began his musical ambitions at a young age, playing for church and school bands. He eventually established his current performance style at Texas Christian University where he transitioned from the band scene to the singer/songwriter realm.
With a strong jazz influence stemming from inspiration from Ben Folds and Elton John, Halperin’s music evokes emotion and distinctly unique piano and rhythmic infusion.
Success and thriving demand affirming his abilities, Halperin harnessed his talents into his debut album ‘You Are the Moon EP’ in 2008.
Halperin’s musical reputation continues to fluorish as his music has been featured on many Midwest radio stations, XM Radio and he himself on NBC’s ‘Kansas City Live.’
Ann Marie Millican, a student at NW, praises Halperin’s ‘strong voice,’ comparing it to the rock band, Switchfoot.
“I’m pretty pumped to see him live,” Millican said, as she plans on going to the concert with several of her wing mates.
Joining Halperin will be David Dunn, also a Texas musician.
