Cameron Live! out June 1, 2010

CAMERON CARPENTER ANNOUNCES
SPRING 2010 TOUR


Includes concerts in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Russia, Germany, and Canada

US Cities Include: Philadelphia, Cleveland, Ithaca, Ann Arbor,
Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, and New York CD release concert

Cameron Carpenter opens his spring 2010 tour at Philadelphia's Kimmel Center Verizon Concert Hall with a solo concert on March 6, and closes his tour with the Edmonton (Alberta) Symphony Orchestra at Winspear Center on June 1. He will play in concert halls, theatres, and churches, and on some of the most important music series in the world.

One of the interesting concerts in his spring tour will be his return to Russia, where he made his Moscow debut in November 2009. In a concert at Tchaikovsky Hall of the Moscow Philharmonic, the audience demanded eight encores. The following week, in a concert in St. Petersburg's Capella, the audience demanded twelve encores. The first classical concert hall built in Russia since the Revolution is "Dom Musica," the Moscow International Performing Arts Center, where he will play a new four-manual pipe organ on May 16. He will also play again in St. Petersburg.

He will make his debut as a lecturer-although he always speaks to his audiences, and greets them prior to a concert-at the Michigan Theatre in Ann Arbor, Michigan (April 1) on the University of Michigan's prestigious Penny Stamps Lecture Series. In the course of the lecture he will perform and demonstrate on the theatre's organ.

Two California concerts are long-awaited by audiences: First Congregational Church in Los Angeles (April 18), which features the largest church pipe organ in the world; and Louise M. Davies Hall in San Francisco (May 2), which features the largest pipe organ in any American concert hall. In both cases, Cameron will choose the varied program during his rehearsal sessions on the instruments.

Finally, he will play William Walton's Crown Imperial and Orb and Sceptre marches, and Francis Poulenc's Organ Concerto with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra in Edmonton, Alberta (June 1). The second half of this concert will be Cameron solo. His organ and orchestra performances are extraordinary, and have resulted in his being appointed Artist-in-Residence at the Carmel Symphony Orchestra (Carmel, IN) through 2014.

His summer tour, in support of his second Telarc album, CAMERON LIVE!, begins in New York at Le Poisson Rouge on June 8. The new two-disc album includes a DVD featuring a cinema organ and music from Schubert to Sousa-with a new work by Cameron for cinema organ; and a CD, recorded live in New York at St. Mary the Virgin where he performed the world premiere of his "Serenade and Fugue on B.A.C.H.," which ends the live Bach concert recording.

"Genre-bending" is a description that Cameron has gotten from writers and reviewers. The spring tour of 2010 will confirm his position as the most exciting organist on the concert circuit, and feature his work as soloist, arranger, improviser, and composer.Spring Tour Schedule:
