    Over 800 folks showed up for Cameron's two part concert which included Bach and Franck a la Cameron and improvisations on Michael Jackson's Billy Jean and Leonard Cohen and Kate Perry tunes (a pre-premiere of pieces for the Disney Arts Center Rosales organ). He did an extensive meet and greet beforehand. A large screen showed him at the hidden console with an inset of the pedalboard.

      Yes, it was great! The place was packed.

      He also came out after the concert to sign programs and take photos.

        darnit, I could've gone to this but I hadn't been reading the organforum!
        Oh well. Probably going to use my "organ concert attendance allowance" for this year going to the Wanamaker's Organ Day, which I haven't gone to in 5 years even though it's less than an hour drive (or SEPTA trip) away for me

          Don't forget the awesome organ in Ocean Grove NJ. Their season is going to start in July (Saturday's at noon and Wednesday's at 7:30pm and a special Labor Day concert:

          I haven't heard the organ in person yet but I heard it on Pipedreams and it sounds like it has a massive and dynamic sound with lots of low end which I like:

          And of course the Basilica Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Newark is in the middle of their "Wednesday's At Noon" series on the 10,000 pipe Schantz (1956, 1990) in a massive acoustical space:

          I recorded the whole Cameron Carpenter concert in Princeton on my Zoom H1 digital recorder in 44/16 wav file format.
