Sara Rogers Tribute

Saturday, September 10, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


The Kenan Center’s monthly free concert series continues Saturday, September 10 from 6-8 p.m. with a tribute to the late musician Sara Rogers. Jazz musician Alex McArthur and vocalist Cortney Chyme who comprised the band GirlCrush+ with Rogers will play in her honor. The duo will be joined by Matt’s Music Youth Vocal Performance team for a portion of the concert.

“To honor Sara’s connection to younger voices and supporting them we want to do a portion of the night being Alex McArthur and Cortney Chyme and a portion of the night showcasing the future,” says Chyme.

Rogers, who tragically passed while riding her bike in June, was an intricate part of the WNY music community having played with dozens of bands and musicians, and impacting the lives of hundreds of youth through music therapy. Rogers was a staple at the Kenan Center having participated in programming such as Coffee with Kenan, Music in the Gardens for Youth, and Jazz at the Taylor. Her band, GirlCrush+ was scheduled to play the Music in the Gardens series in September. Bandmates McArthur and Chyme will continue that performance Saturday, September 10.

A 50/50 during the performance will benefit two organizations close to Rogers, Buffalo C.A.R.E.S, and Rooted In Love.

The series, which is free to the community and takes place on the Locust St. lawn of the Kenan House Gallery, also includes a VIP Beer Garden for those 21 years of age or older. Lawn seating is free with the suggestion to bring your own chair or blankets. Picnics and non-alcoholic beverages will be permitted throughout the lawn seating area. Money-Bag Dumplings will be on site providing food.
