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

Baroque music is light and effervescent like champagne. I always feel happy after the baroque concerts and wonder why so few attend. The flute concerto was my favorite of this evening. The young soloist had an unusual, full moon night sort of tone. The Brandenburg concerto showed the power and elegance of a small cohort of excellent musicians--also a highlight of the evening.
