Kemp's solo concerts showcase a thrilling mixture of music based around his three hugely successful Stormin' Norma CDs (recorded on ‘Norma, the magnificent Dunedin Town Hall organ), combined with contemporary organ music.
His critically acclaimed recordings have spawned an equally popular flurry of live performances at home and abroad. He has presented rip-roaring programmes to great acclaim across the world - from Montpellier Cathedral in the South of France, to Sydney Town Hall. Recently Kemp returned ‘by popular demand’ to Auckland Town Hall, after a full house in 2012, to present another concert in their prestigious series. Future engagements include a UK tour in 2015, USA and Hong Kong Cultural Centre concerts in 2016, and a charming request to perform two concerts on the Cavaillé-Coll organ in La Cathédrale de Nouméa.
In his inimitable and chatty style, his concerts on both pipe and digital instruments present some of the organ’s popular repertoire including Bach’s famous Toccata & Fugue in D Minor, Dubois, the fairground-like Frenchman Lefébure-Wély, Scott Joplin, and the capitvating contemporary Norwegian composer Mons Leidvin Takle - amongst many others.
From an outdoor summer evening soireé concert, to a vineyard barrel hall, to a village theatre, or even the middle of a field ... the organ can be easily transported inside or played from the trailer which has gull-wing sides to create a concert stage anywhere.
