Michael J. Rogan Papers

 Collection
Identifier: UA 5.153

Scope and Contents

This collection contains audiotapes, correspondence, fliers, programs, and related material collected by Michael J. Rogan while a student at the College of William and Mary from 1977-1981. Included in the collection are audiotapes and programs from the student-run Sinfonicron Opera Company; audiotapes, programs, fliers, and clippings about the William and Mary Choir and other choral groups at the College; programs and correspondence about the film festival held by the William and Mary Gay and Lesbian Alumni/ae (GALA) organization during Homecoming from 2001-2010; and programs, stickers, and posters from the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia music fraternity at William and Mary. Included is a sheet Mr. Rogan saved which was a couple of pages of the score produced for the Perry Como Williamsburg Special (television) in which the W&M Choir performed. According to the donor, the score changed with each rehearsal. Also included are some of the cards Rogan received on opening night of several performances. According to the donor it was then a custom to "reach out to those you had connected with during a production." All of the productions are documented with programs and sound recordings.
