For over 75 years, Gwen Craw made a quiet but significant contribution to music in Peterborough.

As a teenager, she began as accompanist for YWCA exercise classes and silent films, shown at the George Street Opera House.  She performed, in concert, with Peterborough’s Madrigal Singers across Ontario; contributing her musical talents and knowledge to Women’s Art Association and Peterborough Concert Association.

For near 50 years, Gwen was the official accompanist for Peterborough Kiwanis Music Festival.  In recognition, the Kiwanis Club awarded Gwen Craw an honourary lifetime membership.
