In recent days, several Brentwood School students have been acknowledged by outside organizations for their artistic talents. We are so proud to share them with you today...

Ava C. '19 has been named a 2019 National YoungArts Foundation Honorable Mention winner in Popular Voice. Selected from thousands of applications, Ava has been recognized for her outstanding artistic achievements and joins 710 of the nation's most promising young artists from 44 states across visual, literary, design, and performing arts. Winners receive cash awards of up to $10,000, opportunities to participate in YoungArts programs nationwide and engage with renowned mentors, and guidance in taking important steps toward achieving their artistic goals. A complete list of the 2019 winners, all 15–18 years old or in grades 10–12, is available online HERE. Congratulations, Ava!

Joey K. '21 was accepted into the Nancy and Barry Sanders Composer Fellowship Program at the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Joey has been studying piano for more than a decade, beginning when he was five years old. His passion for music led him to compose several original pieces on his own by the time he was 10. Currently, Joey studies piano, music theory, and composition at the Colburn School. In addition, he writes and performs in the jazz band at Brentwood School. According to the LA Philharmonic website, the fellowship is "a one-of-a-kind opportunity for young composers to become a part of the LA Phil's thriving new music community." Fellows are guided through the creative process from start to finish working with LA Phil musicians and guest artists in frequent reading sessions and engage with many of the world's greatest living composers. Joey's first composition will be performed at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Saturday. Congratulations, Joey!
