State Arts Council, Capitol TV announce airing of archived holiday student concerts

Posted

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic impacting a number of traditional programs this holiday season, Rhode Island students were unable to hold their annual live holiday concerts in the State House. Each year in December, Rhode Island students perform at the State House in an annual special series of musical performances presented by the Rhode Island State Council. In 2019, more than 2,600 students from 59 schools performed during the holiday season.

This year, to usher in the holidays, Capitol TV has started broadcasting past holiday concerts presented between 2017 and 2019. You can find the concerts on weekdays from 9 a.m. to noon, and then repeated from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. On the weekends, concerts will be shown as the schedule allows.

All schedules are subject to change; you can find the daily schedule and the next day at www.rilin.state.ri.us/CapTV/Pages/default.aspx.

“We’re pleased to be continuing this holiday tradition of student performances at the Rhode Island State House, albeit virtually,” said Randall Rosenbaum, executive director of RISCA. “The next best option to live events is to enjoy these holiday concerts on Capitol TV featuring students from throughout Rhode Island. We hope families will enjoy the holiday spirit and tune in.”

Capitol TV can be found on Cox HD 1065, Cox 15 and 61, Full Channel 15, and Verizon Fios 34, and on the web at www.rilegislature.gov.

The holiday concert series, organized by RISCA, features music of the season performed by students from schools throughout the state of Rhode Island. The performances all took place in the State House.
