The Summer Beats pop-up concert series sponsored by FirstWorks at Roger Williams Park features live, socially distanced performances with local and international flavor. The final performer this summer is Orlando Hernández, an interdisciplinary performer who weaves theater, percussion, and improvisation into immersive experiences of collective rhythm and reflection. He’ll be moving to the smooth sounds of jazz saxophonist Leland Baker, so grab your mask, picnic blanket, and lawn chair and head to the Roger Williams Park Dalrymple Boathouse Lawn (across from the Carousel Village – see map) for sets at 6:30 and 7:15 PM Wednesday August 12th.

September Supporter Drive.

You can have an impact. Help power What’s Up Newp’s coverage of COVID-19, the election, and your community

What’s Up Newp’s September supporter drive is underway. By the end of September, our goal is to see 250 of our loyal readers become What’s Up Newp supporters to help power our daily reporting on COVID-19, the 2020 Election, school reopenings, people & profiles, the social justice movement, arts & culture, and important journalism that is brewing in our newsroom.

When you invest in What’s Up Newp, you invest in your community. Since 2012, What’s Up Newp has been free to read, and we will always be, but we need your support to do what we do.

Will you support What’s Up Newp today?
