About Gloria

The GloTunes experience

Gloria Whitelaw is a professional musician, entertaining in the London, Ontario area. A graduate of Western University (B.Music) and the University of Toronto (B.Ed), Gloria began her musical career in her early teens, playing the organ in church and then teaching piano lessons while still in high school.

Gloria maintains an active schedule, playing in area restaurants, nursing and retirement homes, hospitals, churches, and for various community groups . She frequents venues in London, St. Thomas, Port Stanley, Woodstock, Ingersoll, Tillsonburg, Aylmer, and other nearby communities. Gloria also enjoys entertaining at private events such as birthday, retirement or other celebrations.

Her program is based around the piano: she performs a combination of piano solos and self-accompanied singing. She uses her accordion and ukulele for variety. Sing-a-longs and hymn-sings are also popular requests.

In response to the pandemic, Gloria now offers online performances which can be scheduled at your convenience. No worries about weather, sickness or other unforeseen events!

Her reasonable rates, broad repertoire, polished talent and sweet disposition make her a favourite wherever she plays. She can provide a portable piano for a modest fee if a suitable piano or keyboard is not otherwise available.

The pandemic provided time for a new venture: writing! She has been encouraged to make her stories more widely available, so they are now on Amazon Books.

Call or email Gloria to discuss your musical needs. Availability for live performances can be determined by consulting Gloria's online booking calendar. Check out her books, too!
