About the Guelph Symphony Orchestra
The Guelph Symphony Orchestra was founded by Simon Irving in 2001. Currently under the leadership of Artistic Director Judith Yan, the orchestra continues to provide performances of orchestral classics and new music to audiences in the City of Guelph. Comprised of musicians from the city and region, the orchestra performs regularly in the superb concert hall of Guelph’s River Run Centre.
The orchestra performs the major symphonic repertoire and is a strong supporter of new works by composers such as Ronald Royer, Alexander Rapoport, Alan Laing, Rami and Ari Posner, Maria Molinari, and Glen Buhr. Soloists to perform with the orchestra have included the renowned Anton Kuerti, Jacques Israelievitch, Mark DuBois, James Westman, Donna Trifunovich and Suzanne Hou. The GSO has developed creative partnerships with other musical groups in the community, including the Edward Johnson Foundation, the Guelph Youth Music Centre, the Guelph Youth Singers, and the Music Department at the University of Guelph.
Each season the winner of the GSO’s Concerto Competition performs in concert with the orchestra. Because of the prize – the opportunity to perform a major work with a quality orchestra in front of a live audience – this competition annually attracts outstanding applicants. Another aspect of the GSO’s focus on youth is the annual performance with the orchestra by the Guelph Youth Symphony Orchestra, when the young performers sit with GSO members and receive encouragement from them during rehearsals and part of a concert. The GSO has launched a formal partnership with the GYSO in 2011.
