Presented by Learning From Performers
Paine Hall

A virtuoso composer-performer unique among keyboardists, and the first organist ever nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for a solo album, Cameron Carpenter is smashing the stereotypes of organists and the organ. His repertoire—from the complete works of J. S. Bach and Cesar Franck, to his hundreds of transcriptions of non-organ works, his original compositions, and his collaborations with jazz and pop artists—is perhaps the largest and most diverse of any organist. He will lead a master class for student organists using his International Touring Organ—a monumental digital instrument of his own design, playable throughout the world. This event is co-sponsored by Celebrity Series of Boston.

Do we activate the historical significance of the month within our current intellectual communities? Such questions lie beneath the Black History/Art History series, which features artists and scholars whose works emphasize cross-cultural perspectives and interrogate traditional methodologies.
