The Guelph Youth Symphony Orchestra
The Guelph Youth Symphony provides the community`s talented young musicians with the opportunity to flourish in a vibrant and exciting musical environment, developing orchestral, musical and team skills with their peers.
The GYSO was established in 2011 when a partnership was struck by the Guelph Symphony Orchestra (GSO) and Guelph Youth Music Centre (GYMC) to collaborate in the operation and support of Guelph’s only youth symphony. A grant from The Guelph Community Foundation’s Musagetes Fund – dedicated to performing, visual and literary arts excellence in Guelph and area – helped to get this thriving partnership off the ground.
This partnership with the GSO and GYMC continues to provide the Guelph Youth Symphony Orchestra with substantial support through:
• Mentoring and hands-on coaching from local symphony performers;
• Access to the GYMC’s stunning Recital Hall for rehearsals and performances;
• Increased exposure, credibility and publicity via the ongoing marketing efforts of the GSO and GYMC;
• Collaborative performances with the GSO at Guelph’s prestigious River Run Centre
