About Festival of the Sound:

A music lover’s music festival…

Since 1979 Festival of the Sound has brought the world’s great musicians to Parry Sound, Canada. Stunning, inspiring performances matched perfectly to the beautiful landscape and small-town hospitality. Join us in Parry Sound, Ontario for This is our Sound, July 19 – August 3, 2024.

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 Festival of the Sound (FOTS) formed a Board of Directors and became a non-profit corporation with Mr. Kuerti as Artistic Director. The 1980 Festival of the Sound 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.
