Elementary, middle and high school students from across Rhode Island are storming the State House this month to perform music for the holiday season.
The holiday concerts are part of a series put on by the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, with up to three or four schools singing in a row, in the Statehouse Rotunda.
Rhode Island Public Radio’s John Bender caught a few of those concerts and has this audio postcard.
Gov. Lincoln Chafee has had a change of heart over what to call the tree that graces the Statehouse every December.
After coming in for intense criticism for calling the Statehouse tree a “holiday tree,” Gov. Lincoln Chafee is bowing to public pressure to change the nomenclature.
