The Geogian Bay Symphony began over forty years ago, when local night school string players competed in the Kiwanis Music Festival. One of the Festival adjucators, Herman Dilmore, was so impressed with their musicianship that he offered to help them start an orchestra. Dilmore, who was a Music Professor at the University of Western Ontario, became the group's music director. In September, 1972, the Symphony became incorporated as the Georgian Bay Community Orchestra, and held its first concert with Dilmore conducting. In recognition of Dilmore's contribution, the GBS now presents an annual scholarship award in his name to eligible students of the orchestra.
