Jean (Agricola) Denk, Bass Clarinet/Saxophone

Mr. Zurcher was the first school music teacher to give me a start! He asked me if I wanted to play the Bass Clarinet, as he needed one in the band. I said sure but had no idea what it was. It wound up being my major in college. Thanks, Mr. Zurcher for all you did for me and everyone else in Baldwin!!
