There’s more to organist Cameron Carpenter than his Swarovski-encrusted top and Cuban-heeled shoes (both custom-made), unorthodox transcriptions and semiretired nightclub persona, Shane Turquoise. True, Cameron uniquely blends David Bowie–style showmanship and Laurie Anderson–esque performance art in his shows. But underneath the style is a substance that has led to memorable concerts, whether he’s breaking a pedal in Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center or performing with a live video feed in midtown’s Church of St. Mary the Virgin.
Cameron Carpenter performs at LPR on June 8th. Get tickets here.
