Rich Copley: Young composer found his niche by age 10

Chris Rogerson was a musically precocious child, playing church hymns by ear on the piano when he got home from church. His parents got him piano lessons, but they didn't quite go as planned. "I was not really playing what was on the page," Rogerson says. "I was just making up my own stuff, so my teacher suggested composition lessons." Rogerson, 23, is the composer-in-residence for the 2012 Chamber Music Festival of Lexington.
