Cameron Carpenter, Organ, NYC [Michael Hart]

Michael Hart

If you or your youngsters have ever toiled to tickle the ivories, you might enjoy Cameron Carpenter’s Night of Glam, Rock & Style concert April 16 at Mesa Arts Center.

The recipient of the 2012 Leonard Bernstein Award and the first organ performer to be nominated for a Grammy Award for a solo album, Carpenter plays a variety of styles and genres, like Bach and Liszt alonside film and jazz music.

The versatile musician travels with his own digital organ yet subscribes to the very old-fashioned — and may we say charming — practice of greeting audience members at the door of the concert venue prior to the performance.
