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.

A Juilliard graduate, Carpenter is currently the world's most famous organist, and his star is continuing to rise. Learn More
