Cameron Carpenter

  • What the Los Angeles Times calls the organist: a “wild man”
  • What CBS News Sunday Morning dubbed him: “Bad Boy of the Organ”
  • How the New York Times describes him: as someone who “defies tradition with his interpretations and personality”
  • Those interpretations: Juilliard-honed, unorthodox and diverse takes on classics by Bach, Chopin, and also interprets modern pieces from jazz and pop
  • That personality: vibrant and electrifying, thanks to his glittering outfits, passionate showmanship, and tendency to turn the pipe organ into a sonorous piece of exercise equipment
  • What his approach to organ arrangements has earned him: a Grammy nomination for Best Solo Instrumental Performance—and he’s the first organist to receive this distinction

Detroit Symphony Orchestra

The nation's fourth-oldest orchestra, the DSO has been filling Detroit's music halls with top-notch euphony since 1887. By the 1920s, the orchestra came into its own, entering a golden age that saw them hosting such legends as Igor Stravinsky, Richard Strauss, and Sergei Rachmaninoff. After financial difficulties put the outfit's hall in jeopardy, a multi-decade fund-raising effort led to their triumphant return home in 1989. Today, the orchestra remains one of the most recorded symphonies in the country, bringing the classical canon to millions of listeners and giving orchestra members something to blast at family gatherings when their siblings start talking about their jobs.
