Cameron Carpenter Joins The Columbus Symphony
Music director/conductor extraordinaire Rossen Milanov and the Columbus Symphony Orchestra welcome rising star organist Cameron Carpenter to the Ohio Theatre stage for a rousing program of organ-centric works. Carpenter kicks off the program with a starring role in Joseph Jongen's impressionist masterwork Sinfonia Concertante, followed by Saint-Saens' Symphony No. 3. Both pieces highlight Mighty Morton, the theatre's resident pipe organ, one of the finest instruments of its type in the world.
The first-ever organist to receive a Grammy nomination for Best Solo Instrumental Performance, Carpenter is a rare gamechanger in the classical music world. Flamboyant, self-assured and technically brilliant, the virtuoso performer revels in the spectacle of lightning-fast finger work, perfectly balanced articulation and breathtaking accuracy. Don't miss this chance to see a true innovator do what he does best.
