    1. RWU President’s Distinguished Speakers Series: Poet Richard Blanco @ Roger Williams University School of Law
      7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

      A prolific writer, Richard Blanco’s poetry explores the intersections of his identity as a Cuban-American and openly gay poet and engineer whose journey has taken him from the shores of Miami to the foothills of rural Maine to the White House, where he became the youngest and the first Latino, immigrant and gay writer in U.S. history to serve as the inaugural poet at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration. His poem, “One Today,” was written specifically for the occasion and reflects Blanco’s understanding of what it means to be an American and together.

      Driven by the belief that poetry has the power to connect communities, Blanco’s writing has been lauded for illuminating the human spirit. In 2013, he wrote and performed “Boston Strong,” to celebrate a community wounded but unbroken by the Boston Marathon bombings. For poet and for reader, Blanco’s writing is an exploration of culture, contradiction and connections that invites us to see ourselves alongside him as we search for our own sense of home, belonging and identity.

      On April 15, you are invited to share Blanco’s journey across physical and personal landscapes as he shares selected works with the University community. A book signing will immediately follow.

      The event will be held in the School of Law, Appellate Courtroom 283. It is free and open to the public; no tickets are required.

    1. Live at RWU: The Aaron Diehl Trio @ Roger Williams University
      7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

      At just 29 years old, Aaron Diehl – a “smart young pianist with a fastidious grasp of jazz traditions,” according to the New York Times – has set the music world ablaze with three critically acclaimed records in just five years.

      Hot off the heels of his most recent release, The Bespoke Man’s Narrative (2013), Diehl and his trio are set to take the stage at RWU for an intimate performance that will appeal to lifelong jazz enthusiasts and newcomers alike. Part of the emerging Live at RWU series at Roger Williams University – which hosted jazz legend Freddy Cole and virtuoso saxophonist Harry Allen last November – the free, open-to-the-public concert is offered in association with the Newport Jazz Festival.

      Diehl seeks to stand out as an artist who exemplifies quality authenticity and fluency in the American musical vernacular. Raised in a rich musical tradition, the Columbus, Ohio, native – whose grandfather, pianist and trombonist Arthur Baskerville, was his primary influence – began studying classical piano at age 7, only to discover his passion for jazz when he met piano prodigy Eldar Djangrirov.

      A 2007 graduate of the Juilliard School, Diehl was named Outstanding Soloist at the Lincoln Center Essentially Ellington competition at just 17 years old. A year later, he was touring with the Wynton Marsalis Septet and went on to be named the American Pianists Association’s Cole Porter Fellow (2011) and the Jazz Journalist Association’s Up-and-Coming Musician of the Year (2013).

      The Wednesday, April 16, concert at Roger Williams takes place at 7:30 p.m. in Global Heritage Hall on the University’s Bristol campus at One Old Ferry Road. The event is free and open to the public – no tickets or reservations are required, but seating is limited and guests should arrive early. Any questions can be directed to (401) 254-3154.
