"With coiffed hair, skin-tight glittery trousers and toned biceps, he is more rock star than classical musician." — The Economist
Declared "extravagantly talented" and “the maverick organist” by The New York Times, Cameron Carpenter is “one of the rare musicians who changes the game of his instrument…he is a smasher of cultural and classical music taboos (The Los Angeles Times). A charismatic performer, his approach to the organ has generated an unprecedented level of acclaim, exposure, and discussion. Among his many accolades, he is the first-ever “organist in residence” for the Berlin Philharmonic; the first organist nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for a solo album; and the first organist to achieve millions of views on YouTube.
In 2013, Cameron generated excitement worldwide with the announcement of his dream instrument—a pioneer digital touring organ that hybridizes the “classic” cathedral organ with the sound of the Wurlitzer organ—allowing him to tour extensively. With a diverse repertoire that encompasses everything from Bach to collaborations with modern day jazz and pop artists, this is certain to be an unforgettable performance!
