Darlene Ngo Legacy for Music Education
Darlene Ngo was a respected teacher, leader and colleague. A kind and gentle spirit, she taught with positive encouragement, and looked forward to teaching every day. Darlene was president of the B.C. and then National Kodály Society of Canada, and taught other music teachers at both seminars, and at the University of Victoria. A memorial fund has been established in partnership with the Vancouver Foundation and the Kodály Society of Canada to continue her legacy by providing funds for scholarships, clinician support, educational materials and music-related equipment.
