Kings Kokorodza Marimba Ensemble performs in Denver

The American Orff Schulwerk Association, an organization of thousands of music teachers from across the United States, held its annual national conference last week in Denver, Colorado. The Kings Local School District’s own Kokorodza Marimba Ensemble presented a clinic/demonstration session, with ensemble director Matt Jenkins and the student musicians sharing the high-energy Zimbabwean style music for which the group has become known. The group also presented a concert to several hundred music teachers who sang, danced and clapped along to the twelve tunes on the program, which featured special guest, alto saxophonist Mr. Daryl Gott.
