In a new twist on the traditional event, Brooks’ annual music festival was held on a Saturday night for the first time this year.
Music is around us every day. It is so ubiquitous that we often do not realize how it envelops us, fills us and connects us to thoughts and feelings we would not otherwise experience. At Brooks, the diverse selection of music courses, ensembles and activities offers students the chance to make music a richer and deeper part of their lives.
The Winterfest rock band concert:
The School encourages students to nurture their musical interests and abilities through group and solo performance, private study, and classes in music history and music theory. Through these activities, students can begin to understand music in its greater historical and social contexts and discover connections between music and other academic disciplines.
The Advanced Jazz Band concert:
The Brooks Arts Cabaret wove together theater and music, monologues and ensembles, bright jazz and sultry rock into one impressive performance to a standing-room-only crowd.
The winter musical brings all that jazz to Great Pond Road!
The cast and crew of Brooks’ Firetrail Theatre company slayed in the fall play, a production of Arsenic and Old Lace on campus November 10-13. Even new Assistant Head of School Nina Hanlon got in on the act!
