Recently termed, ‘a prominent guitarist,’ by the New York Times, David Rogers fuses classical, jazz, early, and world music elements into powerful, moving and virtuosic performances based on both original compositions and traditional repertoire. The Washington Post has praised his 'astonishingly florid' solo improvisational passage work. He has been called a 'modern master' of the classical guitar by 20th Century Guitar. ClassicsToday.com has praised his 'first rate instrumental artistry,' and the Lute Society of America Quarterly has called his technique ‘formidable.’

He is lead guitarist and lutenist with the Terra Nova Consort, ensemble in residence at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and made his European debut at the Tage Alter und Neuer Musik Regensburg 2000 Festival with the ensemble. He is a music faculty member at Southern Oregon University and maintains an active solo and ensemble performance career. His solo and ensemble performances have been broadcast on American National Public Radio and Bayrische Rundfunk, including both the nationally syndicated Performance Today (live performance/interview in Washington D.C. NPR studio 4A) and Harmonia programs. Mr. Rogers has recorded for Dorian, Callisto and Focus Recordings. He has given recitals and conducted master classes throughout North America, including performances and classes at the San Francisco Conservatory and the University of Southern California. He has also performed with the Seattle Baroque Orchestra; Vieri Bottazzini, flutist; Angelo Manzotti, sopranist (counter-tenor); Sospirando; with Nancy Elliott in the ensemble Duo Ruggiero; and as a continuo player under the direction of Andrew Parrott.

Mr. Rogers has studied historical plucked strings with Hopkinson Smith and Eugen Dombois at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, Switzerland; with Thomas Binkley at Indiana University; and with Lyle Nordstrom at Oakland University. He has studied guitar with Joseph Fava at Wayne State University.
