from the director

I think everybody will be ready for more fun and great live concerts when Spring 2024 arrives. So with the 2024 Guelph Musicfest series, I’m ready to dazzle your music taste buds with a wide variety of styles and moods. Explore the website, and I think you’ll want to be there for a most entertaining new season. Plus Musicfest ENCORE expands this year into TWO concerts in November!

I’m incredibly grateful for the generous support from an Anonymous Donor who has made it possible to have such a high-quality and extended festival. And many thanks to those of you who have made donations big and small, sometimes adding a “tip” to your ticket purchase. It all helps, especially in these days when it costs over $700 a concert just to rent the Recital Hall and a small warmup room, let only pay the performers. And between all of us, Guelph Musicfest continues without government grants.

So many of you returned last season, after the long COVID drought, and it was great to see you and full houses again. While streaming won’t return this season, I’ve listened to your comments and DIGITAL MUSICFEST video replays will not only be included free with LIVE in-person tickets but will again be available for separate purchase.

Thanks for supporting Guelph Musicfest and my efforts to keep the music alive in Guelph!
