Five years ago, the Algonquin community suffered the sudden loss of their longtime music teacher. Dennis Wrenn died on a student trip to Greece, February 20, 2009.
There was an outpouring of grief and fond remembrances for a teacher that touched so many lives over his career.
I wasn’t a student of Mr. Wrenn’s, but Susan was. In February 2009, she wrote:
I was a music geek in high school and spent countless hours hanging out in the safe haven of Mr. Wrenn’s band room. To say he was the heart and soul of the Algonquin music program would be an understatement. So many of us were touched by his enthusiasm and spirit.
