 There's nothing like music to celebrate the holidays!


BVP scholars kicked off the Holiday Season with performances at the State House last week. Governor Lincoln Chafee was there to greet them! 

Elementary School 2 scholars smile for the camera before singing.


Second and sixth grade scholars also performed at the Providence Bruins Game on Friday December 13th.  

Some scholars even had the opportunity to perform at the Cumberland Manor House on December 4th and at the Cumberland Monastery for the tree lighting ceremony this past weekend-- whew, our scholars are famous!


How about that for some holiday spirit?  

Got Chess?
