Ian Douglas Smith Memorial Fund

Ian Douglas SmithIan Douglas Smith: May 26,1982- 0ctober 27, 2013. One of Ian’s greatest passions was music.  He began taking violin lessons at five and continued these through secondary school and into university.  He played in many local festivals and musical events.  In Calgary, he became a member of the University of Calgary Orchestra, performed solo and in duets and trios and taught lessons. In recognition of his accomplishments as a violinist and the large part that music played in his life, the family has established a memorial fund in his name.  It will provide bursaries to local students studying classical music, with preference to those playing strings. The recipients will be chosen by the Nelson Music Festival Association on the recommendation of adjudicators at the Kootenay Festival of the Arts. To donate to this fund, please print and fill out our Donations Form, directing your gift to the Ian Douglas Smith Memorial Fund,  and send it with a cheque to Osprey Community Foundation. You can also donate online using the Donate button. A charitable receipt will be sent in the mail. Thank you, on behalf of the family.
