PROVIDENCE (AP) — Student musicians from across the state will once again be featured in a series of concerts at the Statehouse to celebrate the holiday season.

The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts announced that the concerts begin Monday and will run through Dec. 20. The concerts are free and open to the public.

The arts council organizes the series. Executive Director Randall Rosenbaum says more than 2,600 student musicians from 59 schools throughout the state are expected to perform, and the council is pleased to continue the holiday tradition.

The series opens with morning performances by high school singers from Cumberland, middle school bands from North Providence and elementary school guitarists from Providence.

The concerts are held on weekdays.
