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

This was a congenial and stimulating conversation with a very moral, ethical icon of America... even after retirement, Brokaw continues to care about his country and the world, especially those less fortunate and works towards a better future. he's a very literate and well spoken man.
Anchor of the NBC Nightly News and Peabody Award-winner, Tom Brokaw was a fixture in millions of living rooms for 22 years, regaling audiences with history as it broke story-by-story, day-by-day. As an author, Brokaw retains a lively interest in historical subjects: His first bestseller, The Greatest Generation, was a paean to those who fought and won World War II. Other work includes A Long Way From Home, about growing up in the American heartland, and BOOM! Voices of the Sixties. In his latest book, The Time of Our Lives: A Conversation About America, he takes a look at the American Dream through the lens of four generations of families, including his own.
