The Newport String Project launches its seventh season with performances at Innovate Newport and the Newport Art Museum

We’re on a mission to provide quality local and independent community news, information, and journalism.

On Friday October 18th 4.30 pm at Innovate Newport, the Project offers audiences a preview of its opening concert at String Sessions. Perfect for the audience member on-the-go or those who want a sneak peek of our concerts, String Sessions reinvent the traditional concert format – presenting short concerts (45-60 minutes of music) in unconventional spaces, that give audiences a way to experience chamber music in a relaxed and approachable atmosphere. Refreshments and gathering at 4.30pm – Music at 5pm. This is a FREE event.

We Can’t Do This Without You

After seven years, we have a major coverage expansion in the works for What’s Up Newp. We plan to increase the number of original news articles published daily by our WUN crew by 50 percent in early 2020, with more coverage of local issues, city government, education, and of course, much more on the topics and things our readers care most about in and around Newport County.
To support this expansion, we’re asking our loyal readers to become What’s Up Newp supporters.
Our content is free and always will be – but we rely on your support to sustain it.
