Pianist Alan Mallach offers a different take on Johann Sebastian Bach’s keyboard music by performing piano transcriptions of some of his greatest organ works, complemented by works from Bach’s son Carl Phillip Emanuel, and by Brahms.

Drawings & Found Objects

Saturday, March 23, 2024, 1:00-5:00 PM

Roosevelt Borough Hall

Oftentimes a drawing or a found object can be the inspiration for a more complicated painting or sculpture—but sometimes simply pairing a drawing and an object can reveal the similarities of their linear structures. This one-day exhibition of found objects, small sculptures, pottery and drawings by local artists will explore the relationship between objects and drawings.


Saturday, April 24, 2024, 7:30 PM

Roosevelt Borough Hall

As the town’s late Shan Ellentuck said
upon hearing of the Roosevelt Poets upcoming event, “Isn’t everyone a poet?”
And the response: “Yes, but only a few
people admit to it!”
This year, you’re invited to read one poem of your own, along with the RAP poet

Roosevelt String Band

Slavery Trail

Saturday, June 8, 2024, 7:30 PM

Roosevelt Borough Hall

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” is the motto for our multi-media event. Photos, music, and poems will celebrate how America’s slavery trail became its civil rights trail. We’ll be telling the story of how suffering yielded overcoming. A narrative of our nine-day drive from Greensboro to Selma, Birmingham to Montgomery to Washington, D.C., visiting the Civil Rights Institute and Birmingham Jail and ending at the National Museum of African American History & Culture. What we learn is that Black history is the history of ALL Americans; as Fannie Lou Hamer said, “Nobody’s Free Until Everybody’s Free.”
