“… everything he touches turns fantastical and memorable.”

The New York Times

Cameron Carpenter is having a ball smashing the stereotypes of organists and organ music, and all the while generating international acclaim and controversy unprecedented in his field. Carpenter’s repertoire, which ranges from the complete works of J.S. Bach to film scores to his original compositions and hundreds of transcriptions and arrangements, is one of the largest and most diverse of any organist. He is the first “concert organist” in history to prefer the digital organ to the pipe organ—and to champion it as the future of the instrument. In 2014, Carpenter launched his International Touring Organ, a monumental cross-genre digital organ built by Marshall & Ogletree to his own design, in extensive tours in Europe and the United States. Carpenter holds the 2012 Leonard Bernstein Award, is the first solo organist ever nominated for a Grammy Award for a solo album, and has played in the world’s most prestigious venues including multiple performances at the Kennedy Center. “No other musician of Carpenter’s generation has more adeptly fused shrewd showmanship, dazzling technique and profound thinking about his instrument and his place in the musical cosmos…” (San Francisco Chronicle).  www.cameroncarpenter.com
