Under the direction of Mr. Craig Ghormley, the
Concert, Philharmonic, Festival and Symphony
orchestras will perform.
Richard F. Dennis is known for his outstanding work
as a teacher, violinist, conductor and adjudicator on
the local, state, national and international level. In
spite of many tempting offers from both coasts and
in between, Mr. Dennis chose to spend his final 32
years before retirement, teaching in the Washington
Township Schools, developing one of the premier
orchestra programs in the country.
In recognition of his great dedication and many significant achievements in music education,
the North Central Orchestra parents, friends, colleagues, former students, relatives and music
lovers, established the scholarship program in 2005 known as the Dick Dennis Endowment.
This Endowment offers the opportunity to young Washington Township string players to
receive assistance to purse their love of orchestra. As the endowment grows, so too will
the number of young string students who will benefit from it.
Donations will be accepted to support the Dick Dennis Endowment, providing funds for deserving students to take private lessons. Currently the Endowment is
helping seven North Central Orchestra students.
