Prefer your organ music with a side of flamboyance? Cameron Carpenter's your guy. The Juilliard-trained, Grammy-nominated virtuoso brings the dazzle to his Koerner Hall show with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony. Custom-made shoes and attire? Check. Theatrical staging and knockout technique? Check. Showmanship galore? Check. The Pennsylvania native currently living in Berlin performs his own Scandal for organ and orchestra, as well as solo pieces and off-the-cuff collaborations with the audience.
