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
For the final performance of its 2011-2012 season, the Seattle Youth Symphony will fill Benaroya Hall with an epic performance of the Messa da Requiem of Giuseppe Verdi.
At once elegiac and cathartic, Verdi’s masterpiece transcends its liturgical setting. This Requiem delivers a complex emotional portrait, not in rememberance of a single man, but for all of humankind.
The orchestra is joined on stage by the Tacoma Symphony Chorus and the UW Chamber Singers, both under the direction of Geoffry Paul Beors, and four internationally-acclaimed soloists familiar to Seattle opera and classical music audiences.
