We are excited to partner with Guelph Master Gardeners to present 45 minute performances in eight spectacular private gardens and two community gardens. Each concert will be a boutique experience, as unique as the garden setting itself and feature selections reflecting a multiplicity of music.
Seating at each concert is limited.
All concerts will follow government prescribed guidelines based on the time and location of the event and the current regulations that apply. Patrons will be required to complete a Covid attestation form prior to attending an event.
Patrons will be informed at 9am, on the morning of the concert, should we have to reschedule the concert due to inclement weather.
We are only making this information available to registered guests in order to control gathering sizes and process the necessary Provincial Covid Screening questionnaire for each attendee.
Rather than charge a standard admission fee for each concert (and to make these concerts truly accessible), all but the Grand Opening Concert, are free. Patrons are welcome to make a donation to the orchestra. Here is the link to our donation page.
You will receive an email confirmation with more information within 36 hours. The day before the event you will receive a Covid Attestation form to complete. Once that has been completed successfully, you will be sent a ticket with your QR code.
