Denny Middle School musicians score big at festival

That video’s from the Denny Middle School Jazz Dinner fundraiser two months ago, as the school’s Jazz Ensemble performed. We’re rerunning it this morning because Denny principal Jeff Clark just forwarded an announcement by music director Marcus Pimpleton of the school’s success at the competition its musicians are just back from:

Congratulations to the Denny Music Department on a successful trip to the Music in the Parks Festival in Coeur D’Alene.

The Denny Middle School Jazz Ensemble and the Denny Middle School String Orchestra topped the middle school category earning Best Overall Jazz Ensemble and Best Overall Middle School Orchestra.

In the Single A Division, Denny Middle School also won:

1st Place Percussion Ensemble – The Denny Steel Drum Ensemble – Superior Rating
1st Place Jazz Ensemble – Superior Rating
1st Place String Orchestra – Superior Rating
1st Place Marching Band – Excellent Rating
3rd Place Concert Band – Excellent Rating

Congratulations to all the students that participated.

    Way to go Denny and Marcus! We all knew Marcus would go on to do amazing things with his immense talent and big heart. The Denny students are lucky to have him. I’m proud to be a Denny alumni ;D Thanks for posting this, WSB!
