Jonny Rodgers began his music career as the guitarist for the band Mighty Purple, touring and releasing albums internationally since the mid 1990s, and sharing stages with some of the biggest names in pop and rock music today. Jonny has also released a number of albums as a solo performer.

His latest solo album, The Aviary, combines the instrumentation and harmonies from the world of classical and modern chamber music with the energy and intensity of the rock/pop world. Gentle songs evoke an exquisite stillness, with arrangements sometimes bubbling up to a breathtaking intensity. Jonny currently performs with a nine-piece group including strings, bass, drums, steel drum and tuned wine glasses. His voice is often described as a strikingly beautiful instrument: soft and clean - eerily pure. Jonny is equally at home writing for rock bands and composing for full choirs. Performing select shows that are always unique and exciting, he is constantly blurring the lines between genres in an authentic way.

8:00 pm: The first set will be chamber music, featuring Jonny's Guitar/Cello duet, some chamber songs for multiple singers, a few pieces by Schumann and Britten, and original songs for smaller mixed ensembles.

9:15 pm: The second set will be Jonny's full 9 piece group, featuring Drums, Bass. Guitar, Strings, Piano, Steel Drum, Tuned Wine Glasses and more...songs from The Aviary as well as some surprises!
