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
