Agostino (Gus) Minter is a serious musician. He played music since his school-age years. Gus and Nick first met one another in early August. On the last Tuesday in September, Gus came over for a dinner at Nick’s place. As a demonstration of his work for Ri4CTV, Nick presented a video of his. The video happens to be about Jairson Ascencao, who was not expected to, but did, arrive exactly when the video finished playing and joined in to dine with us all.

What happens next was totally unexpected. During the meal, Jairson invited Gus and others to join him and his friends at Kennedy Plaza, the civic heart of Providence Downtown, to do an impromptu music gathering. Jairson never had any experience conducting such an event before but, from everyone, he got a big YES, which is the origin of our impromptu music group Providence Haven. The group is organized by both Elias and Jairson from the start. | Tell me more

On the first of November, Elias and Jairson met Nick to learn of the music requirements. In this meeting, Elias declared that the copyright of his music should be owned not by him the individual but by our impromptu music group. That’s why we four met four days later to form the group, which is referred to as #We4inPVD. | Tell me more
