Organist Cameron Carpenter's flashy technique and flamboyant, iconoclastic style have earned him international fame and comparisons to Liberace. While Carpenter is a natural showman, his instrumental prowess goes well beyond tricks. He's the first organist ever to receive a Grammy nomination in the Best Solo Instrumental Performance category. Carpenter's repertoire ranges from the complete works of J. S. Bach to film scores, original works and transcriptions of jazz and pop classics. A Juilliard graduate, Carpenter is currently the world's most famous organist, and his star is continuing to rise. Learn More

Hear the waves crash and the wind whirl in Debussy’s impressionistic postcard of the Mediterranean. New to Seattle this season, Beyond the Score takes an in-depth look at the classics of the repertoire. On the first half of the program, narrator Steve Reeder, local actors, Seattle Symphony and a big-screen presentation explore the history of a great masterwork. Then, after intermission, your concert experience comes full circle when the Orchestra performs the work in its entirety.
Created by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
