Roger Schmelzer It’s a Wonderful World!

Amid a world of distraction, Roger Schmelzer calls on the American Songbook to bring us closer

together. His infectious musical message of kindness and optimism, described as “a journey back to Old

World New York Cabaret,” is directed by the legendary Marilyn Maye.

Ms Maye says, “Roger makes it his business to entertain you. He is fun, festive, fervent, and friendly. His

love for the music is contagious and you’ll love the man who presents it!”

Since making a critically acclaimed NYC solo debut in 2017, Roger appeared at Carnegie Hall in a

Jerome Kern tribute presented by the Mabel Mercer Foundation and has performed at cabaret venues

across the country.

Roger’s 2008 CD, “About Now” was described by public radio as “Chock-full of the sorts of clever lyrics

and lush arrangements that characterize songs for intimate settings from the last century to today.”

Musical Direction is provided by Jeffrey Harris
