2021 season we bring you:

  • 6 Virtual August Concerts– Mondays and Wednesday in August

  • 4 Summer Evening Live Concert Cruises aboard the Island Queen on July – that’s right, LIVE concerts! (already finished)

  • 4 Virtual Autumn Concerts throughout October and November

Virtual Concerts are designed as intimate and interactive events. Artists invite you to participate in a pre-concert themed Happy Hour and, don’t be too quick to leave the “theatre” because we’re also pouring a post-show Night Cap.
Here’s an example: In the early evening on August 9, prior to The Soul of Vienna concert, Festival Friends Toni and Gisela Reinelt will demonstrate their traditional method of preparing Viennese Schnitzel, direct from their home in Vienna. And just begin to imagine what might be served up – including wine pairings – August 25 when the Italian Opera comes to town. 

Patrons and musicians alike, miss meeting and playing together in our performance hall. Our goal is to make these virtual events as emotionally charged as the live ones. In addition to offering creative ways to see and interact with your Festival Family, during 2020-21 the Festival invested heavily in technology to ensure that the audio and visuals we provide are of superb quality.

The Festival of the Sound is more grateful than ever for your generous support of classical music in Canada. We are confident we will be coming through this year stronger than ever!
