Derek Mithaug Memorial Fund


Derek Mithaug was the former Executive Director at The Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts. He was instrumental in merging the New Jersey Youth Symphony with the Judy G. Wharton Music Center that resulted in the Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts; it was a brilliant idea and transformational for both organizations as well as for the entire arts education community in New Jersey. Derek also initiated Musical Theater Arts programming and was part of the team that founded the Paterson Music Project.


Linda Mithaug has established a scholarship fund in his memory at the Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts and has asked that donations be considered in lieu of flowers.
