An Afternoon at Hogwarts

An Afternoon at Hogwarts is a Family Day Celebration presented by the Children First Fund, featuring the Guelph Symphony Orchestra. We invite families of all ages to join us and celebrate our families and the families in our community. The day will include hands-on activities, refreshments and a narrated performance of music from the Harry Potter Series! Children will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience with the orchestra’s instruments before the performance! We encourage you to come dressed up in your best wizarding costumes!

The event will be hosted in War Memorial Hall at the University of Guelph from 2pm-4pm. Tickets are $15 per person and 100% of the proceeds will go toward supporting the children, youth and families we work with in our communities.

Seating is first come, first serve and there will be free parking accessible in any of the university parking lots. For more information, please call us at 519-824-2410 or email Carolyn at

About the Guelph Symphony Orchestra

Guelph Symphony Orchestra (GSO) was founded as the Guelph Chamber Orchestra in 2001, becoming the Guelph Symphony Orchestra in 2003 to reflect the symphonic repertoire being performed.  The Orchestra which is comprised of musicians from Guelph and surrounding region, provides performances of major symphonic repertoire regularly in the Guelph’s River Run Centre.  

A strong supporter of Canadian Artists, the GSO has developed creative partnerships with Canadian performing arts organizations also engages in partnerships with musical organizations within the community.
