That's great, Arjun. Believe it or not, I went to choir school with Cameron Carpenter, or as I knew him, Taylor ;) Here's a great little TV profile on him from CBS:

Wow, those must have been some cool lessons! And I don't get to play much either, just in the summer when I'm not as busy. (I do piano all the time) Cameron Carpenter is so much fun to listen to, I heard him live at the Schermerhorn in Nashville and my mouth was literally hanging wide open!

Rebecca, I had 3 lessons with Cameron Carpenter. But, this performance was before my lessons with him. I do not get to play much on an organ.

Very cool! I play organ but it would take me a while to learn this :) You sound great! Have you listened to Cameron Carpenter?

Hey, Arjun.  The Saint-Saens is a great piece, especially for a large concert hall organ.  I worked on a recording of it when I was in Philadelphia, and I'll give you a copy when I see you at Riad's workshop.

I have not learned to play Saint-Saens.

Hi Arjun, thanks for sharing this video.  I love this piece. You are so lucky to have had the opportunity to play it with an orchestra!  When I worked in Philadelphia, this piece was on the program for the dedication of the new organ in the concert hall there. Olivier Latry was the soloist.  Have you every played the Saint-Saens "Organ" Symphony?

I can barely play with two hands at once. What's your secret for playing multiple manuals at the same time?
