CAMERON CARPENTER

Classical Music

CAMERON CARPENTER

A Forbes Pipe Organ Recital

Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Cohan Center
7:30 pm

A virtuoso composer-performer unique among keyboardists, Carpenter’s approach to his instrument is smashing the stereotypes of organists, organ music and classical music taboos. The maverick musician – who blends brilliant playing technique with the heart of a rock star – will invite yet another standing ovation at the PAC.

“Cameron Carpenter is an exorbitant virtuoso, the ‘Vladimir Horowitz’ of the organ. In his playing, there is the wild passion of virtuosos of the past, who destroyed borders of genres and broadened repertoire for their instruments.” Kommersant

Run time: approx. 100 minutes, one intermission

Sponsored by Bert & Candace Forbes, Mid American Solar and First Solar, Roy & Linda Rawlings
