Denison Graduate Returns for Jazz at the Bandersnatch
Posted: October 2, 2006
Denison's Bandersnatch will be the scene for a late-evening performance by a returning graduate and his jazz band. Seth Rogers, a 2003 graduate in music performance and economics, will play with his quartet for the semester's first Jazz at the Bandersnatch from 10 p.m. until midnight on Wednesday (Oct. 4) in the college's coffee house in Huffman Hall.
Currently pursuing a master of music degree in jazz studies at Youngstown State University, Rogers began formal studies in music at age 11 with private lessons in percussion. At Denison he studied percussion with Guy Remonko and composition with Ching Chu Hu while playing in jazz ensembles led by Pete Mills and Tom Carroll. His economics major concentrated on industrial organization and econometrics.
Rogers is serving as a graduate assistant at Youngstown State and is studying with Glenn Schaft, Dave Morgan and Kent Englehardt while also conducting a large jazz ensemble and coaching jazz combos.
On Wednesday, Nov. 1, Tom Carroll's Jazz Guitar Festival will get underway at the Bandersnatch, and on Wednesday, Dec. 6, the Pete Mills Quartet featuring organist Tony Monaco will play.
