Cameron Carpenter on NPR

Our boy wonder organist Cameron Carpenter was featured this past Sunday with a 13-minute story on NPR‘s Weekend Edition Sunday.  He demonstrates the organ at Middle Collegiate Church, including an improvisation on the WESun theme.  The NPR page for the story also includes the video of Cameron playing the Chopin Revolutionary Etude (from Cameron’s CD/DVD release.)  In the NPR story Cameron compares himself as a showman not just to Virgil Fox but also to theater organ great Jesse Crawford, who made the Hammond Organ famous.  Why not Ethel Smith, whose most famous number was “Tico Tico“?
