Cameron Carpenter, Organ

The rock star of the digital organ.

7:30 p.m., Saturday, April 19

Cameron Carpenter is the first organist ever nominated for a Grammy Award for a solo album. His approach to the organ is smashing the stereotypes of organists and organ music while generating a level of acclaim, exposure and controversy unprecedented in classical music. His repertoire — from the complete works of J. S. Bach and Cesar Franck to his hundreds of transcriptions of nonorgan works, original compositions and collaborations with jazz and pop artists — is perhaps the largest and most diverse of any organist.

With millions of hits on YouTube and numerous television, radio and press features including "CNN The Next List," "CBS Sunday Morning," "BBC Radio 3," The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal and many others, Carpenter is the world’s most visible organist.

"He is technically the most accomplished organist I have ever witnessed… and most important of all, the most musical." — The Los Angeles Times
