The Niwot Community Semi-Marching Free Grange Band

Meet Our Musicians--Band Member Bios

Name: Jennifer Hronkin

Instrument: Clarinet

Uniform Selection--at one time or another:

Jennifer (Doc) Hronkin began playing clarinet in the 5th grade in Michigan (Upper Peninsula). “My parents were involved in music, and band was the cool place to be!” she said.  “I had one of those amazing teachers for band, the kind that really makes a difference in your life.” 

She became Drum Major in marching band in high school. She reports that she “always dreamed of a volunteer position as a ‘marching band coach,’ but better yet, found a marching band to join!”

            Jennifer played clarinet through high school, and played in a chamber ensemble in college, but it had been 20 years since she played the clarinet before joining the Niwot Semi-Marching Free Grange Band after watching the Nostalgia Day parade.  She also plays “a little bit of piano” in her spare time. 

            Jennifer comes by her nickname honestly. In her other life, “Doc” is a family practice physician with Kaiser Permanente. She lived in Colorado from 1997 to 2000, moved away, and returned in 2004. She lives in Gunbarrel and “loves being a ‘music parent’ to two amazing young musicians,” a daughter who plays violin, son who plays piano.

Her favorite song is Louis Armstrong’s rendition of What A Wonderful World. “It reminds me of the beauty all around us every day.”
