The Saugatuck Center for the Arts will host Bostwick Lake Church pianist Roger MacNaughton in the prestigious Sky Hempy Keyboard Series on Sunday, Feb. 13 at 2:00 p.m. As a composer, MacNaughton has won numerous awards for original compositions including first place in the United States by the International Music Aid Awards for his composition “Charlevoix Keepsake.”
MacNaughton has appeared in concert at the Trinity House Theatre in Livonia, Detroit’s Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church Music Series, Grand Rapids Public Schools Art’s Jam, Schuler’s Books & Music, Lowell Area Arts Council, St. Cecilia Music Center, Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, and Aquinas College.
In addition to releasing five instrumental CDs and composing the soundtrack for the documentary “The Gift of All,” MacNaughton’s original “Delicate Dancer” was selected for the new-age piano music compilation “Music In Motion” released in Mittweida, Germany in 2008.
Located at 400 Culver Street in Saugatuck, the Center has transformed a community eyesore into an asset, which provides expanded opportunities for high quality arts and cultural experiences.
