An Evening with Sean Rogers
This show promises an eclectic compilation of tunes that will escort the audience through the sands of time. The goal of this performance is to connect with the audience through nostalgia, “Nostalgia reaches the inner part of us that becomes part of our lives” states Rogers. During the second half of the show, Rogers will illustrate his creative abilities as he gathers audience suggestions for a playlist and takes several of the submissions to compile an unscripted song. Leslie Mauldin from Avenue B will be a guest artist during the performance. Sean Rogers has won praise and acclaim nationally and internationally for his artistic mastery at the keyboard.
