Would the several hard frosts we have had killed the new growth on my evergreen shrubs? Browned on new growth.

Yes, the symptoms you are seeing are consistent with damage to fresh growth by the late frosts we had. Fortunately, the damage is largely aesthetic and plants will quickly resume growth. There will likely be some growth reduction in these plants for the current season, but there should be little, if any, lasting impact.
