Cameron Carpenter

BACH / CHOPIN / SHOSTAKOVICH / CARPENTER

“Not Your Grandma’s Organist: Alternatingly dazzling and subtle, and always fired by a profound musical intelligence.”
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Cameron Carpenter is having a ball smashing the stereotypes of organists and organ music— all the while generating worldwide acclaim.

“My vision is to keep the best of the classical organ—its emotional magnitude, its sonic range, its coloristic drama—but to liberate these from the pipe organ’s immobility, its moving parts, its cost, its institutionality,” says Carpenter.

This gifted Juilliard grad will perform on his international tour organ built by Marshall & Ogeltree.
