Festival Of The Sound - July 20-Aug 11, 2018


Celebrating 38 years of Canada's finest summer chamber music festival on the shores of Georgian Bay! Experience world-class chamber music combined with the beautiful landscape of the Parry Sound waterfront. Join us for a fabulous season of music that includes over 60 concerts, educational opportunities, & special events.

During the summer of 1979, renowned pianist Anton Kuerti purchased a summer home near Parry Sound and organized three concerts by outstanding Canadian musicians. The enthusiastic response to these programmes inspired him to propose an annual concert series. Local residents accepted the challenge, and the FESTIVAL OF THE SOUND formed a Board of Directors and became a non-profit corporation with Mr. Kuerti as Artistic Director. The 1980 FESTIVAL OF THE SOUND (FOTS) marked the beginning of Ontario's first annual international summer classical music festival. In 1985, James Campbell began his tenure as the Festival's second Artistic Director, a position he still holds today.

The musicians that come to the Festival of the Sound annually are what make us who we are. Whether it is their 1st or their 37th summer coming to Parry Sound, each musician is part of the Festival Family.
