View biography in full page >
Cameron Carpenter is having a ball smashing the stereotypes
of organists and organ music, and all the while generating
international acclaim and controversy unprecedented in his field.
Cameron's repertoire - from the complete works of J. S. Bach to
film scores, his original compositions and hundreds of
transcriptions and arrangements - is probably the largest and most
diverse of any organist. He is the first 'concert organist' in
history to prefer the digital organ to the pipe organ, and to
champion it as the future of the instrument.
A former child prodigy, Cameron Carpenter trained at the American Boychoir School, the North Carolina School of the Arts and has two degrees from The Juilliard School. He holds the 2012 Leonard Bernstein Award, is the first solo organist ever nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for a solo album, and has appeared with many of the great orchestras around the world; he has spoken and debated at think tanks and conferences including TED, IdeaCity, The Entertainment Gathering, and many more.
