Flamboyant organ virtuoso Cameron Carpenter has been busy supporting his latest release If You Could Read My Mind, which, on the week of its release, was the top-selling classical album in the U.S. Now, Mr. Carpenter takes to New York City's Town Hall on October 23.

The 32-year-old organ revolutionist is world-renowned for his idiosyncrasies. His International Touring Organ (ITO) gives him the ability to maintain a modern ear on his classical compositions.

Winner of the prestigious Bernstein Award, with numerous transcripts and collaborations with leading pop and jazz musicians, Cameron is not one to be taken lightly.

With an unrivaled technique, Cameron takes his repertoire to various lengths per performance, meaning this is one not to miss out on.

Sharing a stage that similarly has seen the likes of Bob Dylan and more, the American organist will perform Thursday, October 23 at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $45–$100 depending on seating and are available here.

Until then, there's nothing else like it, here's "Alfie" off his latest Sony Classical release.
