Nine musicians selected for citywide honor orchestra

Nine Skinner musicians were selected to participate in the 2013 Citywide Middle School Honor Orchestra.  Only a select number of students per school, recognized for their talent and leadership skills, are asked to audition.  A representative from Denver Public School’s music program traveled around the city to conduct auditions.  Skinner is so pleased to have had nine of our student musicians selected to participate, a huge increase from last year, when just one student was selected – and a testament to the skill and expertise of our band and orchestra teacher, Mr. Jordan Dwyer.

With this honor comes the responsibility for the students to learn the music, attend all rehearsals and participate in a professional manner as a young adult.  This year’s conductor is Rebecca Jonas, orchestra teacher at Westview Middle School in Longmont.  The Middle School Honor Orchestra will be a part of a concert along with Honor Orchestras representing DPS elementary and high schools.  The concert will be on Saturday, April 13th, at 3:00 p.m. in the auditorium of John F. Kennedy High School, 2855 S. Lamar St., Denver, 80227.
