Our sympathies to the family of Wendy Vernon

We are saddened to learn of the sudden death, in late April, of Wendy Vernon.  Wendy will be remembered in the Guelph and Mt. Forest area as a highly respected ballet teacher and choreographer.  She is survived by her husband, Canadian conductor, Timothy Vernon, and four children:  Allegra, Ariel, Blythe and Jeremy, to whom she was a supportive Suzuki Mom.

Due to the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Guelph Youth Music Centre (GYMC) is doing everything it can to protect you, our users and visitors, and our staff. To this extent, the GYMC will be following the guidelines and recommendations of the Governments of Canada, Ontario, Wellington County, and City of Guelph as well as the Guelph Dufferin Health Unit guidance regarding physical distancing practices and sanitation.

As the GYMC re-opens, all users and visitors of the GYMC must agree to the terms in our new liability release form. Please complete this form online. (NOTE: This form should be submitted each day that you visit the GYMC; It is used for contact tracing, and if you forget, there is a guest book in the Community Room. The online form auto-fills most of the required answers so it is very quick to complete.)


The GYMC will be closed until January 25, 2021 as per the December 21st announcement by the provincial government moving Southern Ontario into a 28-day lockdown due to Covid-19. Please check back here for updates, or visit our Facebook page. For more information on this directive, visit:
