The Brophy Wind Ensemble and the Brophy Symphonic Band performed at the Arizona Band & Orchestra Directors Association and both groups earned ratings of “excellent” which qualifies both groups to proceed to state next year.

After an absence of about five years, 2015 marked the return of the Brophy College Prep concert groups to the ABODA festival system and the judges critique sheet gave the Broncos a challenge for the future by stating, “You’re on the right track—keep working,” according to a press release.

Brophy College Preparatory is located 4701 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix.
