The Killy Stage curtain has closed on our successful performance season after Concert for a Summer’s Eve drew rave reviews from students and patrons this past weekend.

Instruments are being readied for the journey home. Here is the final tally of awards for our ensemble groups. Coming back for live performances with an audience was such an exciting and dynamic experience for our performers this year. The icing on the cake was the number of Brentwood wins at festivals, which qualify the ensembles for the Canadian Nationals in May of 2023.
