BELLOWS FALLS — Deemed to be among “prominent classical guitarists” by The New York Times in 2007, David Rogers fuses classical, jazz, and world music into what he describes in his promotional material as “expressive, virtuosic performances.”
Featured in major musicians' magazines, Rogers' performances have also been broadcast on both sides of the Atlantic. He has given recitals and conducted master classes throughout North America, including performances and classes at the San Francisco Conservatory and Interlochen National Arts Camp. He studied historical plucked strings at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, Switzerland.
Rogers will perform an intimate concert at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge St., on Saturday, Oct. 16 at 3 p.m. By way of introduction to the area, 40 advance tickets will, at his suggestion, be sold for $10 through stage33live.com by midnight the day before the show if it hasn't sold out. Tickets will be $15 at the door, and there will be limited standing room.
Josh Hall, described as “a classically trained guitarist and music educator whose style owes as much to Barrios and Tárrega as Mustaine and Monk,” will open with original material in the spirit of Dylan, Cockburn, and Taylor - “songs that engage the listener to feel and think deeply, to find the reverence in everyday life, and to question the stories that define so much of the modern world,” according to the news release.
Masks and social distancing are required for all attendees except when eating or drinking. The COVID-19 protocol may change without notice.
