Brenda Gibson has led a committee in building a great community event, Inspiration Guelph which celebrates and supports music and arts education in Guelph and Wellington County. The concert combines over 100 professional and aspiring student performers and raises funds for our Free to Play Program to provide financial assistance to low-income children so that they can take music and art lessons, and dance.
Over the many years of shows, Inspiration Guelph has raised a total of almost $150,000 in support of local children and youth.
In 2020, with the absence of live music, Inspiration Guelph went virtual for two different shows: Inspiration Encore in June and Inspiration Online in November. These events were able to keep the music alive, while continuing to raise funds for the Children's Foundation of Guelph and Wellington.
