By Space Coast Daily // January 22, 2016
BREVARD COUNTY MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – GRAMMY nominated organist, Cameron Carpenter, is performing at the King Center February 25th at 7:30 pm.
Cameron Carpenter is having a ball smashing the stereotypes of organists and organ music – all the while generating worldwide acclaim and controversy.
His repertoire – from the complete works of J. S. Bach to film scores, his original works and hundreds of transcriptions and arrangements – is probably the most diverse of any organist. He regularly appears as a soloist with many of the world’s great orchestras, and signed in 2013 an exclusive multi-album recording contract with Sony Classical.
Cameron launched his International Touring Organ – a monumental digital organ of his own design, playable throughout the world – with concerts at Lincoln Center, the release of the Sony album If You Could Read My Mind, and a 31-concert tour to Europe, the USA and the UK.
A virtuoso composer-performer unique among keyboardists, Cameron’s approach to the organ generating a level of acclaim, exposure, and controversy unprecedented for an organist.
His repertoire – from the complete works of J. S. Bach and Cesar Franck, to his hundreds of transcriptions of non-organ works, his original compositions, and his collaborations with jazz and pop artists – is perhaps the largest and most diverse of any organist.
He is the first organist ever nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for a solo album. For more information please visit www.cameroncarpenter.com
