Roger Schmelzer


What’s Happening?

Roger Schmelzer makes abundant use of America’s Songbook to convey a message of hope, kindness, and optimism that takes audiences on “a journey back to Old World New York Cabaret.” He is directed by the legendary Marilyn Maye. Musical Director is Jeffrey Harris, who accompanies Ms. Maye, and has also music directed for Jack Jones, Maureen McGovern and Lea Salonga. Since making his critically acclaimed NYC solo debut in 2017, Roger appeared at Carnegie Hall in a tribute to Jerome Kern sponsored by the Mabel Mercer Foundation. In addition to New York City, Roger has performed in venues across the county. 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.” Roger’s 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." He is currently at work on a new recording of songbook and jazz standards.
