Burrillville residents and Ocean State Toastmaster Club President Paul Roselli has announced that A Sampling of Music and Stories will be held on Sunday, June 5 starting at 2 p.m. at The Music Mansion in Providence, described as, “not your ordinary afternoon event.”
“I wanted to juxtapose the musical artistry of Ben Nacar – a pianist and member of Ocean State
Toastmasters – with speeches from members of OST that highlight the public speaking potential in all of us,” said Roselli, of the event by the Warwick-based club.
The hour long performance has two distinct elements: the spoken portion which includes
prepared stories and extemporaneous speeches; and, musical interludes.
Toastmasters is an international public speaking organization designed to give anyone the opportunity to improve their public speaking skills and to develop leadership skills in managing and growing a public speaking club. The Warwick chapter is one of about eight clubs in Rhode Island. Worldwide, Toastmasters reaches 143 countries with about 16,600 clubs.
“When I first joined Toastmasters, I was challenged by speaking before an audience. This
group helped me along,” Roselli said.
The program on June 5 includes speeches about puzzles, taking a walk in the woods,
immigrating to the United States and more.
The event is free and open to the general public, and street parking is free all day on Sunday. For more information call (401) 447-1560 or go to oceanstate.toastmastersclubs.org or bennacar.com.
