Several Mt. Hope student musicians were honored to perform at the Rhode Island Music Educators All-State Music Festival, recently at Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium. After many months of practice and preparation, instrumentalists and vocalists auditioned in front of a panel of judges as part of the three day event.
The auditions took place at Moses Brown School on Providence’s East Side. There, student musicians from across the state performed pieces that they had only hours to rehearse before they would be ranked by the judges.
“This is a year where we had quite a few Mt. Hope students selected,” said choral director, Vicki Boyle.
Those who were named as All State performers are: Brendan Barboza, Alex Brassard, Michael Contente, James Costa, Kelsey Ferrara, Joshua Lee, Isis Loyola, Rachel Majors, A.J. Murgo, Dylan Murphy, Rose Pansa, Nicole Rodrigues, Ricky Sousa and Maxwell Warden.
