Thursday, March 28: Organist Cameron Carpenter

When the Weekly Volcano thinks organist, we think of a little old woman in a polyester skirt and stockings plugging away at the hymns every Sunday at church ... or maybe that nun with the battery hanging around her neck from Sister Act. We're jerks. But, like many professions, organist
