It's not often you see the words "maverick" and "organist" together, but there's no better way to describe the phenomenal Cameron Carpenter, a classical musician with the charisma (and wardrobe) of a bona fide rock star. So extravagantly talented he can play Bach with his feet alone, Carpenter has received international fame for his flashy technique and flamboyant, iconoclastic style. Though a natural showman, the Juilliard graduate has honed an abiding talent that goes well beyond tricks. The first organist ever to receive a Grammy nomination for a solo record, he brings his wide and varied repertoire (stretching from Bach to Burt Bacharach) and peerless skill to Orange County's Irvine Barclay Theatre. Be there as he pushes his new digital touring organ to its mighty limits and beyond.
