WARWICK, RI (December 9, 2022) – Bishop Hendricken High School is proud to announce four student musicians have been selected to the 2022-2023 All-State Music Festival sponsored by the Rhode Island Music Education Association (RIMEA). Three students were named to ensembles within the Junior Division and one to the Senior Division. All four will perform in the All-State Music Festival at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in March. Additionally, Edmund Lok ’23 was selected nationally for the National Association for Music Education’s All-National Honors Ensemble Symphony Orchestra and performed in Baltimore in November.

“We are so proud of our young men for this fantastic achievement,” said Julia Paolino, Director of Arts. “The All-State selection process is extremely competitive for instrumentalists, and it is clear these students committed their time, energy, and talents to achieve such great results. We can’t wait to see them perform in March!”

The All-State musicians were chosen based on a video audition which required each to learn a specific piece for their instrument or voice part. Auditions were then evaluated by a panel of professional musicians across Rhode Island. The selectees will rehearse over the course of the next two months culminating in the All-State Music Festival in March.
