Brandeis Trebles Prepare for Graduation Performance

It is hard to believe that it is already June and the 2020-2021 school year is coming to a close! As the students and teachers are busy tying up the end of the school year, the Trebles have been hard at work on this year’s performance for One Voice for the graduation ceremony.  

The Trebles, Brandeis’ a cappella group, was founded by 7th and 8th grade singers in 2015. In 2016, the singers participated in the graduation ceremony at Brandeis, highlighting the graduate singers at their last performance before leaving Brandies. Every year since, the Trebles have performed at graduation and alumni have joined in adding their voices to the group and connecting with their community through song.  

“I wanted to find a way to bring the singers back on campus, to stay connected with their school and with the group that meant so much to them as students,” says music teacher Kimberly Lostetter. 

Last year, because of the shelter-in-place orders, each student individually recorded their performance from home and alumnus Rachel Freeman ‘02 helped to edit the virtual choir performance. This year, with safety protocols in place, the performance will be a bit of a hybrid from previous years. Alumni from the past five years will join their “digital” voices together with the current students to perform for this year’s graduation ceremony. 

“We are excited to highlight our graduating 8th graders and welcome back dedicated alumni to join together in voices once again,” adds Ms. Lostetter. “My hope is that this tradition will continue on and that the program will continue to bless the Brandeis community for years to come. We look forward to sharing our performance with all of you on June 10.”
