Denich experiences International Music Camp

After the first group of Rugby kids came back from the International Music Camp (IMC), Rugby still sent more.

Dessa Denich, rising freshman, attended the fifth session at IMC, and truly enjoyed her first year. She practiced her instrument, tenor saxophone, and performed in a concert on July 19.

“I’m definitely planning on going back next year,” Denich said.

The camp had over 350 students from all over North America, including one from Honduras.
