Event description

Description

About the event: An evening of pure improvisation out of a myriad of styles and traditions. This performance is part of the Extemporaneously performance series, an effort to reclaim the practice of improvisation in contemporary music.

About the performer: Dylan Knight Rogers is a composer, pianist, writer, raconteur, and educator. A Chicago native, he studied philosophy at St. John’s College Annapolis and the University of Chicago. As an undergraduate, he studied piano, counterpoint, and composition with distinguished emeritus faculty member Elliott Zuckerman, sustaining a pianistic lineage which names Vera Maurina Press, Ferruccio Busoni, and Franz Liszt among its forebears. Rogers’ performances have set him apart as an imaginative and concerted steward of the instrument, praised for his special command of pianistic tone and the depth of his interpretations. His compositions have been performed throughout the United States.

About the space: This performance is presented by Davin Youngs Voice, located in Chicago's historic Fine Arts Building.
