Lesley-Jane Rogers’ extensive recital repertoire is not listed here, but comprises songs from the Lieder repertory, mélodies, English Song and American Song, as well as light music and, if desired, opera and operetta arias. Whether drawing on popular favourites or beguiling unknowns (or a mixture of the two), she creates well-crafted concerts, discussing programming ideas with Festival Directors and concert promoters as appropriate. Add to this Lesley-Jane's out-going personality and her engaging interpretative skills, and the result is a lively, visual performance, tailored to her audience.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
It almost certainly won't be a problem. However, it's best if you can get in touch as soon as possible so that I can amend my timings accordingly.
How much time do you need to set up?
I generally like to be there an hour before the start, so that we can set up and get the rehearsal out the way before people start arriving.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Absolutely! The choice of repertoire is entirely yours.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
It may be that I already know it anyway (!), but, if not, given enough warning I am always happy to learn new repertoire.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
My engagement with an audience/congregation - they feel "drawn in" and part of the performance.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
The Barbican, The Purcell Room, The Royal Albert Hall, St John's Smith Square, St James' Piccadilly, many Cathedrals and churches, and many Festival venues such as Lake District Summer Music, and Dartington.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Lucia Popp, Felicity Lott and Phyllis Bryn Julson.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Recording the soprano solo role in Carlo Martelli "Shredni Vashtar" with the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, conducted by Ronald Corp, with Simon Callow narrating.
