We are deeply saddened to share that Mrs. Dorothy Hess Baker of The Dexter F. and Dorothy H. Baker Foundation passed to her eternal life on June 14, 2020 in Bonita Springs, Florida, at the age of 92. Dorothy was an active volunteer, singer, community philanthropist, and a great supporter of Community Music School. She will be missed! She served on the CMS Board of Directors for many years and was major supporter of the Modern Band outreach program at CMS. In June 2019, recital hall located at CMS, 1544 Hamilton Street, Allentown, became known in perpetuity as the Dorothy H. Baker Recital Hall. The Dexter F. and Dorothy H. Baker Foundation will continue to carry forth her passions for youth education, music and the arts, entrepreneurship, and community social services.
