El Segundo Concert Band Co-Founder, Perry DeNisi Dies of Cancer
It comes with deep sorrow and sadness to learn of the passing of Perry DeNisi. After many years of fighting he has lost his battle to cancer. Perry was one of the co-founders of the El Segundo Concert Band acting as a Board member and musician for many of the past 14 years.
Perry leaves behind a legacy in El Segundo and a lasting impression on the Concert Band. He touched many people’s lives through his leadership at the organization and his drive to make music accessible to the youth of El Segundo.
Through his inspiration and dedication many music students received private lessons and a window into the passion music can create. In addition, he was one of the instrumental figures in bringing the current El Segundo High School band director, Steven Fox, to the school. His will be a lasting memory and legacy touched by thousands.
In March of 2013 the El Segundo Concert Band honored Perry by announcing the introduction of a new scholarship fund in his name. The fund will be used to provide private lessons to student members of the Concert Band based on merit.
