SAXTONS RIVER — Like the phoenix that emerged from the Main Street Arts (MSA) gallery on May Day, MSA's summer season “sparks new energy with diverse music and theater performances,” organizers say. The first event, on Friday, May 27 at 7 p.m., features a “beloved” Vermont singer-songwriter, Elizabeth Rogers, who will also be performing this summer at Carnegie Hall.
Born and raised in Manhattan, vocalist Rogers began her professional singing career at the age of nine in the children's choruses of the Metropolitan and New York City Opera. Now living in the wilds of Vermont, she sings stories of the large and small themes that run through a human life.
Her voice - which has been compared to Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell - “has a delicacy, clarity, and purity that perfectly underscores her insightful lyrics,” organizers say.
MSA's historic building and theater space is located at 35 Main Street in Saxtons River. Tickets for Elizabeth Rogers are $18 in advance and $20 at the door. For more information, and to purchase advance tickets, go to mainstreetarts.org.
