Guelph Symphony Orchestra is committed to serving the community of Guelph by taking a leading role in the vibrant artistic life of this progressive city, with a particular emphasis on free outreach programs. We are grateful for your support in this most unusual time!
GSO is dedicated to engaging youth in their pursuit and love of music with programs ranging from our GSOKIds Club to the Guelph Youth Symphony!
The musicians, board and staff of the Guelph Symphony Orchestra stand in solidarity with all those who have been affected by systemic racism in our society. We seek to reflect, engage, and better understand the systemic barriers that prevent BIPOC artists from participating in orchestral music, and explore means of reducing those barriers, particularly among youth in our community. We seek to educate ourselves, our artists, and our supporters about the important contributions of BIPOC artists, composers, Indigenous communities, people of colour, people with disabilities, 2SLGBTQ+ people, and women have made and to feature diverse conductors, performers, soloists, composers, mentors, and creators on our stage.
Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance. Verna Myers
