Sowing Festival Seeds

Way back in 1979, the Festival Seeds were sown in Parry Sound. Forty-four years later, that tiny seed has grown into a tall, stately tree, with many branches offering shade during the heat of summer, and dropping their cones each fall. This annual cycle strengthens and nourishes the future of the Festival, the Town of Parry Sound, Georgian Bay and beyond.

Please help us sow the seeds of classical music and keep our Festival Tree reaching for the sun!
