DANIEL BERNARD ROUMAIN
FirstWorks Artistic Ambassador
Known for his signature violin sounds infused with myriad electronic, urban, and African-American music influences, DBR takes his genre-bending music beyond the proscenium. This season, he will be embedded in our community for a series of workshops reaching students, teachers and the elderly, community meals and conversations, and public performances with local artist collaborators.
After careful consideration for our creative community both near and far, we’ve made the difficult decision to indefinitely postpone PVDFest. While we won’t be partying in the streets this June, we’re working on ways to share PVDFest magic in 2020. Look for updates at http://pvdfest.com.
Over the past 16 years, FirstWorks festivals, performances and programs have attracted more than 500,000 participants. Find out more about how we build the cultural, educational and economic vitality of our community in Providence, Rhode Island.
