“Carpenter means to drag the organ, along with those who would resist changing it, into the 21st century.” The Wall Street Journal
“A phenomenally resourceful organist, equipped with the foot speed of a professional dancer and seemingly more than 10 fingers.” Los Angeles Times
“Carpenter’s touring organ gives him a portable, pitch-stable instrument with almost unlimited room for growth – and with a whoosh and a sis-boom-bah, he unleashed some of its out-there timbral capabilities.” Los Angeles Times
A superstar organist with tremendous technical prowess and a flamboyant persona to match, Cameron Carpenter has a rare gift for connecting with his audience. Just ask anyone who witnessed his thrilling Santa Barbara debut in 2016, when he performed an explosive program on his International Touring Organ. Returning with his monumental self-designed electric instrument, the Juilliard-trained genius combines his “ambition, visual flair, technological savvy, inclusive tastes and bold, boundary-breaking musicianship” (The Wall Street Journal) into a spectacle that leaves the audience as bedazzled as his Swarovski-studded shoes.
