Dolce. Translation: Italian; adjective meaning sweet, soft, gentle, pleasant, smooth. Musica Dolce is all of these, but mainly sweet. Sweet chamber music for the people, to paraphrase their motto. The Musica Dolce Chamber Orchestra has given hundreds of performances around the region. While some of its concerts involve the entire orchestra, others feature smaller groups, in this case, a sextet of two violins, viola, cello, clarinet and piano. Its repertoire consists of classical music from the baroque period to the present.

Forty-five years old and still jumping! Roomful of Blues, the five-time Grammy-winning band is our very own Rhode Island institution. Inspired by the spirit of the groundbreaking bands of the post World War II decade, they’ve breathed new life into vintage songs from the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, infusing them with boundless energy. They are going to jump, swing and rock away the evening. They will have you tapping your toes to their rhythms and humming along with familiar tunes.

By popular acclaim, we bring back our A Cappella Explosion. Two of the oldest all-male collegiate groups, Tufts’ Beelzebubs and Brown’s Jabberwocks will be joined by one of the youngest, Roger Williams’ co-ed group, Hawkward, all of whom who will delight you with songs both old and new, from smooth Oldies to Rock to Pop to Hip Hop. As the “Bubs” would put it: “Fun Through Song”.
