Organist Cameron Carpenter performs Saturday night at Boettcher Concert Hall with the Colorado Symphony.

The program starts at 7:30 p.m. and includes Samuel Barber's Toccata Festiva and Francis Poulenc's Concerto for Organ in G minor.

Carpenter will perform on the International Touring Organ, a versatile digital instrument he helped design. Saturday's concert marks the first time he's played the instrument accompanied by an orchestra.
