  7 pm The Majestic Theater presents Cameron Carpenter.  Grammy nominated organist Cameron Carpenter has shattered the mold, playing the organ like no one before him or since.  Carpenter has reinvented the art of playing the organ. From technique, to costume, to the five manual electronic pipe organ he tours with, the Pennsylvania native and Juilliard graduate has changed the face of the pipe organ in more ways than one. "The bad boy of the organ" dazzles audiences with his energetic, dance-like performances of technical perfection and musical virtuosity. You've never heard -or seen -the organ like this before.  For more information call 717-337-8200 or visit www.gettysburgmajestic.org
