Cameron Carpenter

As the only organist ever nominated for a solo album Grammy, Cameron Carpenter is the poster child for smashing-preconceived-notions-to-bits. Often referred to as the "rockstar of the organ" (sounds saucy!), Carpenter takes an ancient behemoth of an instrument and transforms it into a wild, rollicking, contemporary musical device. He plays everything from Bach to Patsy Cline—the 32-year-old takes music and blasts it, completely revamped, from his one-of-a-kind William J. Gillespie Concert Organ (built over three years from maple, poplar, oak, steel, tin and lead). This is organ music like you've never heard, and never even dreamed existed. If you think classical music doesn't have any new tricks left, come to the Segerstrom Center tonight and be blown away.
