Cameron Carpenter

When: Sat., March 19, 8 p.m. 2016

With his tight, black clothes, bedazzled leather boots, and occasional mohawk, Cameron Carpenter looks like a stunt double for Trent Reznor, maybe Johnny Depp. He applies that star gusto to, of all things, the pipe organ repertoire, alternately thrilling and mystifying audiences by playing fast and loose (literally and metaphorically, mind you) with Bach, Sousa, and Chopin. For the stage, he’s designed “The International Touring Organ,” a digital beast so grand it looks like the command center of the starship Enterprise. As with his performances themselves, it’s at least exciting for gawking. —Grayson Haver Currin
