Calling all Future Brave Musicians!

We know that future Braves with a passion for music will not want to miss this unique opportunity to experience firsthand what being a member of our musical community is all about. A Musician’s Brave Day is designed to provide 8th grade students the opportunity to visit Brebeuf Jesuit and experience our campus for half of the day along with the opportunity to rehearse and prepare for a performance for the second half of the day.

In addition to a visit, future Brave musicians will participate in a live performance with the Brebeuf Jesuit band, orchestra, and choirs. A Musician’s Brave Day is a two-part experience that includes a Brave Day visit on Friday, November 8 from 8:15 a.m.- 3:15 p.m. and a rehearsal with a live performance with the Brebeuf Jesuit choirs,  band, and orchestra in the Brebeuf Jesuit Chapel on Wednesday, November 13.
