Continue A Legacy of Advocacy and Service

Thank you for donating to the Gifted Music School in memory of Dorotha Smart. Dorotha was passionate about Gifted Music School and viewed it as the greatest way to elevate the educational standards and aspirations for all music students in Utah. Thank you for joining in this great cause she loved.

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our beloved friend and board member, Dorotha Sharp Smart. A fierce proponent of music education, Dorotha was an accomplished pianist whose past teachers included the renowned Grant Johannessen and Gifted Music School founder, Eugene Watanabe. An active student through her ninth decade of life, Dorotha had an unquenchable thirst for lifelong learning and the mastery of her instrument.

Completely unwilling to take no for an answer when it came to her passion for supporting high-level music education, Dorotha was truly a force of nature. She has left an indelible mark on our community and her presence looms so large that it is almost impossible to imagine a world without her. However, through the Dorotha Sharp Smart Memorial Scholarship Fund, her uncompromising advocacy will continue to inspire and empower all of us to make outstanding music education accessible to all.
