Skinner Music Program Hits a Note!

Honor BandThree of our Skinner musicians were selected  to participate in the 2014 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 three of our student musicians selected to participate.

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 Amy Martinson, music teacher at Hill Middle School.  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, February 22, at 3:00 p.m. in the auditorium of North High School. Congratulations to our Skinner musicians, we are so proud of you.
