At Brentwood, we believe the Arts promote creativity, self-expression, and teamwork. The arts help students visualize an idea and see a complex process through to reality. They teach patience, humility, and confidence. They enrich the imagination and challenge the mind. They provide balance and perspective. The arts create culture and civilize us.
Enter the T.Gil Bunch Centre for Performing Arts and you might hear the jazz band, the concert choir, or the strings ensemble practising. Perhaps the Pop Orchestra will be rehearsing for its spring tour. You may see dancers or actors in rehearsal. Explore the visual arts studios and you will see students engaged in photography, pottery, drawing, painting, sculpture and architectural design. Enjoy the results of the artistic process in public performance in either the Killy Theatre or on changing display in the Art Gallery. Attend an assembly and you may hear a pianist, singer or guitarist (sometimes performing his or her own composition), or watch a video written, filmed and edited by students. Go backstage or up to the sound, lighting and projection booth and see the skilled theatre production student crews at work.
All Brentonians get involved in the creative process, both as participants and as members of the audience. Opportunities abound for beginners through to experienced performing and visual artists who wish to specialize. Arts courses run for the full year and most students choose two arts each year.
The T. Gil Bunch Centre is a 20,000 sq.ft. facility which includes a 431 seat theatre, a dance studio, a media arts room, a green room, four dressing rooms and other production related spaces, as well as a music suite.
