Thousands of elementary students are performing with the
Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra today at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium to
cap a year of music education from the Philharmonic's Link Up program.

Over 10,000 students will perform with the Philharmonics  in a series of 6 concerts this week.

 A grant from Hasbro
Children's Fund has enabled every third, forth and fifth grade student in Pawtucket to attend the
concert.

Transportation is being provided to the over 6,000 students
and teachers from the Art's Big Yellow School Bus program.
