Santa Barbara Symphony Presents
Carpenter Plays Poulenc & Saint-Säens

Nir Kabaretti, Conductor
Cameron Carpenter, Organ

Cameron Carpenter is an organist like no other. A former child prodigy, he has made an unlikely career of re-imagining the instrument while methodically dismantling the musty stereotypes that have long attended it. Known for his musical brilliance and flamboyant performances, he continues to push the boundaries of organ technique to breathtaking heights. Among other distinctions, Mr. Carpenter is the first solo organist ever nominated for a Grammy Award. For this program, he will perform Francis Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Strings, and Timpani, as well as Camille Saint-Säens’ Symphony No. 3. Additionally, prepare to be delighted by the first two movements of Claude Debussy’s mesmerizing Nocturnes.

Pre-concert lectures start one hour before show time!

Debussy: Nuages & Fêtes from Nocturnes
Poulenc: Concerto for Organ, Strings and Timpani
Saint-Säens: Symphony No. 3 in C minor, “Organ”
