We are looking for more board members! Please consider joining us.
The Brooks Music Festival Association was founded in 1995. From the outset it has served to present an annual festival and to encourage the promotion, advancement and appreciation of the performing arts in Brooks and surrounding communities. We offer a variety of disciplines including Band, Strings, Piano, Choral Singing, Vocal Solos and ensembles, Choral and Solo Speech and Guitar.
Our Festival is non-competitive. We hire qualified adjudicators who, like guest teachers in a master class setting, give positive feedback to the performers, and encourage them to be the best they can be. All performers are welcome, regardless of their ages and stages of expertise.

Speech Arts Worskshop

at Trinity Lutheran Church in Brooks
10:00am 11:30am: Solo Speech
1:00pm 2:30pm: Choral Speech for Teachers
The Brooks Music Festival Association is hosting a Speech Arts workshop on Saturday Nov. 25, 2017. Deborah Deans from Medicine Hat, a highly qualified teacher of Speech Arts and Drama for over 40 years, will facilitate the workshop.
In the morning session, Ms. Deans will work with individuals who would like to optimize their performance in reciting poetry, creative storytelling, reading a sacred text, doing a scene from a play or public speaking. Bring along a short piece you are working on to share with other participants and receive feedback and suggestions from Deborah.
The afternoon session is open to TEACHERS who would like to learn more about using choral speech in their classrooms. Youll learn how to select appropriate pieces and will work through the steps to create a polished performance. No preparation necessary, but if you have a piece in mind, please bring it to the workshop.
For more information please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Pre-registration by November 15th is required by contacting email@example.com
Solo Speech Workshop: $15.00. If you have a Speech Arts entry in the 2018 Festival, your festival fee will be reduced by $10.00.
