Cameron will present a pre-lecture organ recital on the Michigan Theater organ beginning at 4:40 pm.

With its grandiose, stereotyped image, and an association with the Christian church, probably no instrument is more in need of innovation than the organ. Grammy-nominated virtuoso organist Cameron Carpenter provides that creative transformation with work that has been the subject of both acclaim and controversy. His presentation includes demonstrations on piano, as well as performances on the Michigan Theatre’s Barton organ. With support from the University Musical Society (UMS) and the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance.
