“Rhapsody on the Rio Grande,” is an innovative film produced with generous funding support from the City of Laredo, and based on a haunting musical composition, “Rapsodia,” by TAMIU faculty member and University organist Dr. Colin Campbell. It explores the river’s immutable ability to bring together diverse peoples and, using music, explores theme streams of culture, history and identity.
