The holiday season is here, and the musical talents of Rhode Island school musicians will be showcased as part of a month-long musical celebration of the holidays during the holiday season, starting in the last week of November.
“This year will be our biggest celebration to date,” said Randall Rosenbaum, executive director of the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts. “Over 3,500 student musicians from 66 schools throughout the state will perform at the Rhode Island State House in a special series of musical performances.” The concert series starts on Tuesday, Nov. 27 and runs through Friday, Dec. 21.
All concerts are free and open to the public.
The concert series, organized by the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, will feature music of the season, performed by students from schools throughout the State of Rhode Island. The performances are all in the Rhode Island State House.
